John Bonham A Celebration II marks the 40th anniversary of the untimely passing of John Henry Bonham on 25th September 1980. He was just 32 years old.
The two-day, up-scaled event is intended to be more inclusive for both local residents and fans that have travelled to Redditch from around the UK and overseas, and provide an economic boost for the town’s hospitality and retail businesses.
The inaugural festival in September 2018, celebrating the Led Zeppelin drummer’s 70th Birthday and the installation of a bronze memorial in the heart of the town centre, attracted fans from around the world, including the US, Mexico, Australia, France, Italy, Ireland, and from all over the UK.
“The line-up will be revealed over the next few weeks along with other special announcements!” says Ros Sidaway, Event Director. “Fans of Led Zeppelin and rock- blues music will not want to miss out on what will be another terrific occasion”
Tickets are due to go on sale mid-November.
Meanwhile, businesses interested in sponsoring the 2020 event should contact Ros Sidaway on 07887 525107 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
