The Pete Shelley Memorial Campaign presents NOSTALGIA, an evening of live music on 23rd November 2019 at the Turnpike in Leigh.
Playing live will be the only Buzzcocks tribute band you need to know about – the Buzzkocks + support from Ontick and Same As It Ever Woz.
Every penny of the £11.50 ticket price for this event (after booking fees) goes toward a memorial of Pete Shelley we are campaigning to put up in Leigh (Pete’s hometown).
The music event starts at 7pm but if you get into town early there is a preview of the new Pete Shelley exhibition, “Understated” also at the Turnpike from 5pm. There will be a licensed bar at the venue where profits will also go to the campaign fund, and the after-show party will continue from 10.45pm across the road at The Musketeer pub with live music from Strangeways.

If you can't make the event, the UNDERSTATED exhibition is running till mid December.
It will celebrate the “trailblazing creative vision” of Pete Shelley in a collection of memorabilia, photographs and footage from friends, family and fellow musicians.
Original artworks and designs related to his career will also be on display at the display, which runs until Saturday, December 14.
