Have your say

A CONCERT has been organised to raise money to restore a Second World War submarine.

The concert, called Museum at Night: Unplugged, will support fundraising efforts to save Gosport-based HMS Alliance – the only A-class British Second World War-era submarine left in the world.

The concert will take place on Friday, May 17, at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum. The concert has been organised by community group Loud and Proud.

The line up includes Gosport’s Battle of the Bands winners Kelly and the Acoustics, local folk singer Kenny Alexander and ukelele group The Stokes Bay Strummers.

Nicola Ure, project leader from Loud and Proud said: ‘This will be a fabulous night of acoustic music to suit a wide range of tastes.

‘We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to put this event on for the Submarine Museum in support of their appeal to save HMS Alliance.

‘Through helping others and working together, Loud and Proud are showing people and themselves what they can achieve.’

Tickets are £6. Visit supportus or call (023) 9254 5036.
