The Construction industry set to Rock out for another year
Band entries for the construction industry’s one and only battle of the bands, Construction Rocks, are now almost closed with just two band places available. Tickets are still available.
In just under a month’s time, one of the biggest annual events on the construction industry’s calendar, will see bands from the construction and property sectors compete against each other in the name of charity.
Construction Rocks, established by WSP Director, Bill Price and Nigel Fraser, West One Management Consulting has raised a total of £110,000 since its inception in 2008, topping at its record raising £32,000 in 2017 with majority proceeds going to UK property industry charity, LandAid.
“Construction Rocks is a unique event that is not only tremendous fun, but also gets the whole industry engaged for a great cause every year”, says Bill Price, Director at WSP. “Over 1200 people turned up over two nights last year as competitors, fundraisers and audience members at our biggest venue to date at Scala, King’s Cross London.We’re aiming for our highest fundraising total this year and we’ve no doubt we can do it with the industry’s support.”
Spread across two days at Scala, Kings Cross on 24th and 25th October, a total of 16 bands will compete to win ‘Best Band’, ‘Best Performer’ or ‘Best Fundraiser’ with the opportunity to win studio time at Kore Studios.
Construction Rocks 2017 was the 10th
anniversary of the event and our most successful in terms of fund raising. We
were able to give £22,000 to LandAid plus almost £10,000 to other good causes
and charities nominated by the bands.
So it’s a huge thank you to all the
bands, fans, companies, judges, MC’s, stage manager, technical team, Scala, WSP
organisation team and other supporters of the event.
