Age UK West Cumbria is organising a music event with the aim of raising money for their cause. 

The event is taking place on Saturday, October 21 in Skinny Jimmy's at Workington. 

A spokesperson said: "Age UK West Cumbria are extremely excited to be organising a live music fundraising event.

"It is part of our campaign to raise funds toward a free minibus service for older (often isolated & lonely) people in West Cumbria.

"The event will feature both up-and-coming and well-known and established West Cumbrian bands/solo artists.

"We have a long-term plan to run multiple events and build on the success and notoriety of each one, eventually scaling-up to a yearly festival. 

"Part of the idea is to give a more 'modern' and 'trendier' vibe to the charity; in the same way the Vint-Age branded shops have."

The headline band is Colt 45 a well-known Alt Punk Rock Band from Workington, who play all over the UK, festivals, and have featured in Kerrang. 

The support act is Antics, a teenage Wigton band whose music has been featured on your BBC Introducing Cumbria multiple times. 

The opening act is Macca, an acoustic performer with a strong following in Workington.
