It’s one of the hottest tickets in town – and there are four up for grabs thanks to a donation to raise funds for a Sheffield family’s campaign for justice.

Music fans are going crazy for tickets for the 2013 Mosborough Music Festival.

The two-day festival, organised and promoted by local author Steve Cowens, will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23.

Saturday’s headline act is Sheffield’s Reverend and the Makers, while Exit Calm from Barnsley and I Set the Sea on Fire will also perform.

Sunday’s show will feature Paul Heaton, whose rise to fame with The Beautiful South has led to three solo albums.

Original ‘rude boy’ Neville Staple will also be making an appearance with some of his hits from The Specials, while the day will begin with the tones of local 15-year-old singer-songwriter John Lennon McCullagh.

Promoter Steve has donated four two-day tickets valued at £46 each to the Justice for Matt Campaign.

The campaign aims to bring to justice those responsible for the death of 17-year-old Matthew Cryer, from Frecheville, who grew up in Killamarsh, who was beaten and shoved down stairs by bouncers on the Greek island of Zante five years ago.

Matt’s dad David Cryer is to raffle the tickets to help pay to fund the campaign.

They are available behind the bar of The Birley Hotel in Birley Moor Road, Frecheville.

David said: “I’m really grateful to Steve for donating the tickets. The festival promises to be a great event and I know the tickets are highly sought after.”
