Joe Strummer Remembrance Sunday
A tribute to a man who inspired us all.....

Sunday November 9th, 2003
2pm - midnight at CONCORDE 2, Madeira Drive, Brighton (on the seafront east of Brighton Pier)

It was a truly wonderful day. The bands and performers were brilliant. The Concorde hosted us superbly. And we raised 2,140 for Strummerville - The Joe Strummer Foundation for New Music - to help kids from disadvantaged backgrounds get involved in music.

Thanks, everyone who was there - and anyone who wanted to be but couldn't!

I will add links here to anyone with pages with photos/reviews of the gig - please email me if you have them. Here's the first one - from Neil:
