York Teachers To Perform at Grand Departy Concert
12:07pm 12th June 2014
York teachers Disco Mister will perform at York's Grand Departy concert on July 4th.
Robin Parmiter and Ian Wilson, who are known to fans as Disco Mister, released their single ‘Bring It Home’ to raise funds for a variety of good causes, including The Bobby Moore Fund, Bowel Cancer Research and the Ann Maguire Educational Fund, which was set up in memory of the murdered school teacher from Leeds. A proportion of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to their chosen charities.
Sonja Crisp, cabinet member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to announce that Disco Mister are performing at the Grand Départy Concert and proud to be able to help them boost the already significant amount of money that they’ve raised with their charity World Cup song, which they decided to release after it became an internet sensation.”
The line-up for the Grand Départy Concert, which will take place at Huntington Stadium, includes Union J, Russell Watson, Rough Copy, Kian Egan of Westlife-fame, York-based singer songwriter Alistair Griffin, Ollie Marland, The Loveable Rogues, Altered Images, Brother Beyond, The Blow Monkeys and The Overtones.
The concert has also seen ticket prices cut from £100 to £50 for a family ticket, which admits two adults and two children. The first five hundred tickets sold through the Ticketline website will also get free passes to the Spectator Hub at York Racecourse.
Minster FM can also now reveal that the concert at the Huntington Stadium now has a licence after no objections were received from local people.
Sally Burns, Director of Communities & Neighbourhoods for City of York Council, said: "We can confirm that the license for the Grand Departy Concert was granted on 10 June as there were no representations."
