In a hundred years time there’ll be a statue of Pete Bentham in Concert Square holding Queen Victoria’s knob… It’ll be there to celebrate the achievements this man made to the alternative Liverpool scene… The Free Rock n Roll Scene… Rewind one hundred years to the present day and we are right in the midst of those celebrations, and long may they continue…
The Free Rock n Roll Festival is a two-day event put together by Pete of his favourite bands who have played his Free Rock n Roll nights here in Liverpool….
