The Open Mic Night 'Omma & Chain Buskin' Event held on the 27th March was a roaring success and raised over £350 for charity. A full evenings entertainment of 5 star performers created an amazing atmosphere in the school hall as Sutton School & Specialist College opened its doors to the wider community for what can only be described as a Bostin' Evening. Hosted by the talented John Langford and Billy Spakeman from Black Country Radio we had incredible performances from students at Sutton School and guest acts Andy Hood, Jess Jones, James Broadfoot, John Langford, Billy Spakeman and Ed Strong. Wow what an evening!
Listen to the live recordings!
