Convention celebrating career of Wolverhampton icons Slade set for Bilston's Robin venue
A convention to celebrate the career of Wolverhampton's rock and pop legends Slade is being held in Bilston in the new year.
The band is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and the current line-up, which includes original members Dave Hill and Don Powell, is playing a festive home town concert at the Robin 2 in Bilston on December 16.
The convention is also at the Robin on May 28 from 12 noon. Tickets are available for afternoon and evening sessions or both.
The afternoon includes an interview and question-and-answer session with special guest John Steele from The Animals, who was the executive producer for the band's film Slade In Flame. There will also be a quiz and the showing of Slade films and videos.
In the evening tribute group Slyde will be playing all the classics including Coz I Luv You and Cum On Feel The Noize.
Tickets are still available for the December concert at £20 in advance.
