We are delighted to announce that The Crookes will be headlining the main stage at the Pembroke June Event 2014. Since 2009 this Sheffield 4-piece have developed a distinct sound over three acclaimed albums, combining classic British pop rock, with courageous guitar riffs and intelligent lyrics. Returning to the UK from an extensive European tour, their set promises to be a triumph for live rock music, and it is our pleasure to be hosting them for the evening. This announcement coincides with the recent release of their new album 'Soapbox' which is available now.

Pembroke June Event 2014 is proud to be supporting Against Malaria Foundation and the £2 donation that our guests can make when purchasing their tickets will go directly to the charity.

We think this is a fantastic cause to support and here are some reasons why:

  • The Against Malaria Foundation is a UK-based charity providing long-lasting insecticidal nets to populations at high risk of malaria (a preventable disease). A million people die from malaria every year, with 70% under the age of 5.
  • They are a highly efficient charity; a net is the most effective means of prevention, it costs only US$3 per net and 100% of the money donated to the charity buys nets.
  • Against Malaria Foundation is the number one most-effective charity, as rated by GiveWell, Giving What We Can and The Life You Can Save, the money donated to the charity WILL save lives.

For more information about the charity, please take the time to visit their site.
