Concert for Radio Aire’s 30th
Leeds station Radio Aire are putting on an open-air concert in the city centre as part of the celebrations for their 30th anniversary this year.
Aire on the Square next month will feature artists the station has made famous over the past 30 years, including Chesney Hawkes, Livin' Joy, Right Said Fred and N-Trance.
Radio Aire will have been on air 30 years on 1st September this year and the build-up starts with the gig in Leeds' Millennium Square on 28th May.
Profits from the event – which costs £24 a ticket – will go to Radio Aire's charity Cash for Kids Appeal in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust in Leeds. The aim is to raise £20,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust Units at the Leeds General Infirmary and St James' Hospital.
Leeds City Council deputy executive member for leisure Councillor Lisa Mulherin said: "We are delighted that local charities will be benefiting from Radio Aire’s 30th birthday celebrations and we hope that everyone attending will enjoy a fantastic day out."
Anthony Gay 96.3 Radio Aire Station Director said: "Radio Aire’s proud to have been entertaining the people of Leeds for the last 30 years and we are looking forward to marking the occasion of our 30th birthday with a fun evening out in the city."
