A fundraiser for the indie/comedy legend, Frank Sidebottom. The man underneath the papier mache head, Chris Sievey, sadly, died on June 21st 2010, after a short battle with cancer. Now, the FRANK SIDEBOTTOM STATUE FUND has been set up in an attempt to raise £60,000 for a bronze statue of Frank, which will be placed in Timperley Village as a permanent tribute / memorial. More details about Frank, the fund and how you can donate in the meantime, can be found here. http://
We miss Frank and we want the campaign for a statue to succeed. He put Timperley on the map. You know he did, he really did. And he was an enormous influence and inspiration to a great many people. Not to mention, a fantastic bloke.
We're very lucky to have some big names involved in this, all giving their time absolutely free, and are looking for other high profile acts to get involved with future events across the country.
PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS A LONDON SHOW ORGANISED BY THE LONDON BRANCH OF THE STATUE FUND. APOLOGIES IF IT'S TOO FAR FOR SOME FRANK FANS TO GET TO, BUT MORE EVENTS ARE BEING PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE, BOTH IN THE NORTH AND SOUTH OF ENGLAND. THIS ONE HAPPENS TO BE IN THE SOUTH.
