Concert To Launch Clutha Trust

24 November 2014, 06:06

A memorial concert is taking place on Saturday, on the first anniversary of the Clutha helicopter crash.

Ten people were killed when a police helicopter crashed through the roof of the Glasgow pub: Pilot David Traill and police constables Tony Collins and Kirsty Nelis were killed when the Eurocopter EC 135 went down, while those killed in the pub were John McGarrigle, Mark O’Prey, Gary Arthur, Colin Gibson, Robert Jenkins and Samuel McGhee. Joe Cusker was pulled from the wreckage but later died in hospital.

Many more people were hurt.

The Clutha, in Stockwell Street on the north bank of the River Clyde, is one of Glasgow's oldest pubs and was a popular venue for live music.

To launch the Clutha Trust there will be a very special night taking place at the world famous Glasgow Barrowlands.

The acts playing include; Bombskare, Sandi Thom, The Girobabies, Rose Room, Mickey 9s, The Mighty Sparrahawk, Carlton Jugband, Denny and Paul, Horse, Carly Conner, Andy Craig, Chris Pookah, Dixie Beaver and Craig Dandelion.

Tickets for the event cost £10 and details can be found here.

A service will also be held at Glasgow Cathedral while numerous other private acts of remembrance will also take place across the weekend.
