The Big Beat For Hospice is a unique fundraising event which will see a group of local musicians playing the drums, in unison, over three days with the aim of raising over £60,000 for Hospice Isle of Man.
The Big Beat for Hospice drummers will be demonstrating their talents with a chance to show off yours tonight. On the MANX TELECOM MAIN STAGE just after 6pm several of the organisors will show off their paradiddles and fills but with the added twist of inviting members of the public to come on stage and “have-a-go” either alongside or in a drum duel. The aim of tonights event is to raise awareness of their aims (to raise £60,000 for Hospice Isle of Man) whilst having a bit of fun. Your attendance and generosity would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to Martin at Bushys tent and Marcel Ltd at the Bay Hotel Port Erin there will be donation buckets throughout the TT fortnight where you can throw your spare change for a cause that affects far too many of us but is such an important and caring service for our loved ones.
