FRANK TURNER ACOUSTIC NAMT SHOW
Colchester Arts Centre
The year 2020 will be a landmark one for the Nick Alexander Memorial Trust (NAMT). Not only will it mark five years since the terror attack at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris where Nick lost his life, but February would also have seen Nick celebrating his 40th birthday. Nick’s passion for live music and its ability to bring people together is central to everything NAMT does, so to honour his birthday year in style the trust is delighted to launch 40for40, a series of fundraising events aiming to raise £40,000 for music projects in disadvantaged communities in 2020.
Kicking off the 40for40 fundraising we are truly delighted to announce that NAMT patron ambassador and Nick’s friend, folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner & special guests will be joining us at Colchester Arts Centre on 26th January for a very special intimate solo acoustic show.
Frank’s formidable reputation as a crowd-pleaser has seen him lift the roof off NAMT’s annual fundraiser, A Peaceful Noise, so we can’t wait for him to bring his show to the hometown venue where Nick began his career in the music industry hosting popular club nights. With eight albums under his belt and a devoted fanbase, Frank is one of the UK’s best advocates for the power of live music and its ability to unite us, so his appearance is guaranteed to be legendary. Don’t miss out!
