Solar Nineties are honoured to announce that they are reuniting for a special performance in support of Mark Baker-Milner’s fundraising efforts for MS-UK: a national charity dedicated to empowering people affected by multiple sclerosis to live happier and healthier lives.
Mark’s wife Kerris has been recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and he will be running in the 2024 London Marathon for the charity. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated towards Mark’s target of £2,000 for MS-UK.
Expect to hear the tunes you know and love mixed in with a few surprises…
