A CHARITY fun day is taking place in a Whetstone music club today.

The iBar, in High Road, is hosting a Children in Need fundraiser featuring live music, face painting and a magician, from 1pm.

A selection of bands from Al Pascal music, made up of youngsters aged between eight and 18, will be taking to the stage to perform all styles of rock music.

There will also be an appearance by Pudsey the bear along with a tuck shop and live auction for the whole family.

Alex Paschali, founder of the Al Pascal music school, said: “With the popularity of shows like X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, there’s been an increasing call for rock/pop music tuition and a place to showcase young talent locally and to give to such a worthy cause is a perfect combination.

“People should come along and support this event, because we’re keen to get local businesses and the community involved as much as possible.”

The family event is on from 1pm and will run until about 6pm. Entry is £5, with children under five getting in for free. All the money raised from the day will go to Children in Need appeal.
