Lightening the Night is taking place at the Elmwood Tennis Club in Holland Road on June 9, hours after the votes will have been counted and a leader sworn in.

There is plenty of country blues to tap your feet to, a bbq to sink your teeth into and a bar with soft and alcoholic drinks on sale.

The free event features live music from the evening’s hosts Laura Matthews & The Flakes, musicians from Kensal Green who will play songs from their debut album Not Again, and add some loved Americana, folk and pop classics.

The doors and bar opens at 7.30pm with the music beginning at around 8pm.

The event is free, children are welcome and donations are gratefully accepted.

Albums will be available for purchase.
