FORMER Austin and MG Rover workers plant are being urged to get to the Austin Sports and Social Club next Friday (September 12) to be part of a new musical venture celebrating the famous factory.

Ex-Dodgy frontman Nigel Clark will be at the venue from 8pm to 10pm collecting memories from those who used to work there for a new Song for the Workers of Longbridge.

The project is the brainchild of Longbridge Public Art Project artist-in-residence Hannah Hull.

She said: “There was a real lost culture when the factory closed and there are a lot of interesting stories out there.

“I wanted to undertake a project that not only kept those memories alive, but also took them forward into the future.

“The factory has gone, but the strong community in the area still lives on.

“We want The Song for the Workers of Longbridge to celebrate the past and remember it for years to come.”

There is no need to book places, those who want to submit their memories can just turn up on the evening and, as an added incentive, will get a free drink.

Those who contribute to the song will also get a free limited edition of the final song.

For more on the project, email Hannah Hull or call her on 07932 528888.
