Lancaster and Morecambe School Aid to extend to three days for first time

Organisers Jay Blackburn and Mark Simpson, and Beyond Radio's Gibson Freedman handing over money raised at School Aid 2022 to St Luke's Primary School

The dates have been announced for School Aid 2023 and for the first time the event will be held over three days.

The annual live music weekend to raise money for local schools will be held on Friday February 10, Saturday February 11 and Sunday February 12.

Money raised at the West End Soul Club soul music night at the Exchange in Morecambe on the Friday will go towards School Aid.

Then there will be a full day of live music at The Bobbin pub in Lancaster on the Saturday from noon until midnight, and a similar full day at The Exchange in Morecambe from noon until midnight on the Sunday.

Beyond Radio once again will be supporting the event, which has been running since 2018.

Gibson Freedman from The Tea Time Show will host the Lancaster event on February 11.

And Greg Lambert from The Resident and Beyond the Headlines will host at the Exchange on the Sunday, February 12.

Local musicians give up their time for free to take part in the annual event.

Last year's School Aid raised £4,400 from donations, raffles and auctions, which was divided between West End Primary, Morecambe Bay Primary, St Luke's Primary and St Patrick's Primary Schools.

School Aid is organised by Morecambe musician Jay Blackburn and Lancaster music promoter Mark Simpson.
