SNOW Patrol will take to the Alhambra Theatre stage next month for charity.

The venue made the big announcement this afternoon (Thursday) that the band will play an acoustic set in aid of the Craws Nest Trust charity.

The show will take place on Saturday, November 2 with tickets going on sale this Monday.

Lead singer Gary Lightbody will be joined by Nathan Connolly (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Jonny Quinn (drums) as the Dundee-formed rockers play to a Dunfermline audience.

The band formed in 1994 and are widely known for hits such as Chasing Cars, Just Say Yes and Run.

Chasing Cars was crowned the most-played song of the 21st century, earlier this year.

Claire Fletcher, PR Manager for the Alhambra, commented: "We are thrilled that Snow Patrol will be performing at the Alhambra in November.

"It is fantastic news for Fife. Fans will be in for a real treat, and the event will offer a fantastic opportunity to see the iconic band here at the Alhambra."

The event is in support of The Craws Nest Trust, as the charity prepares to mark its 30th anniversary. The charity has been fundraising since 1989.

More than £600,000 has been raised in three decades to buy powered wheelchairs, scooters, recliners, and manual chairs for people with mobility needs.

Eleanor Bowman, trustee, added: "We are over the moon that Gary, Nathan & Jonny from Snow Patrol have offered to do an acoustic night for the 30th Anniversary of The Craws Nest Trust in the Alhambra Theatre on 2nd November.

"They have such a busy schedule and I’m delighted they have been able to fit it in.

"As this is our 30th anniversary we wanted our events to be different from anything we had done in previous years."

Around 180 people have benefited from renewed mobility through the trust.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Monday, October 14 at 10am from the theatre's box office on: 01383 740384/733666.

They can also be bought online via Ticketmaster.
