A Dum­fries pub is host­ing a mu­sic event in aid of the MS So­ci­ety.

The char­ity band event on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 17, will see a host of acts take to the stage at the Nor­mandy Bar in the town’s Tro­queer Street from 2pm.

The line-up in­cludes The Love­cut Re­volvers, Vel­vet/Ra­tio, Stoney Broke, Black Mango and a DJ set from Rus­sell Stephen.

En­try is free but cus­tomers will be en­cour­aged to do­nate to the char­ity.

Or­gan­iser, Kat Hal­l­i­day said: “The event is all about rais­ing money for a char­i­ta­ble cause that is close to our hearts.

“We would re­ally en­cour­age peo­ple to do­nate, as there are peo­ple close to the pub that have ex­pe­ri­ence of mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis and since it’s maybe not as well known to a lot of peo­ple, we re­ally wanted to do some­thing for them.

“So many bands have been help­ful and of­fered to play. It’s re­ally good to see every­one com­ing to­gether to help put this event to­gether and raise money for a great cause.”

Come and join us Bill Im­rie from the Nor­mandy Bar and Kat Hal­l­i­day who is or­gan­is­ing the mu­sic event
