A memorial concert dedicated to the lives of those lost in the Summerland fire in 1973 will be held next month.

The event, at the Peel Centenary Centre, will also raise money for charity.

The indoor Summerland leisure complex opened in 1971 but two years later fire swept through, killing 50 people.

The disaster led to a major change in fire regulations on the Isle of Man and in the UK.

This year's memorial concert, which takes place on 7 August, will include poetry and music, said organisers.
