Rock Regeneration’s Ross & Chinners Announce Fazza Fest in memory of their good friend and gig-going buddy Faren Short, who sadly passed away recently……

To be held at the Madding Crowd, Bournemouth on Friday 29th & Saturday 30th October 2021

Faren (Fazza) Short was obsessed with music and particularly the live experience, attending thousands of gigs throughout his life supporting national and local bands. He died earlier this year after a brave and dignified battle with cancer, his legacy is one big party to celebrate his life featuring local live music from bands picked by Faren himself. His request was that all the funds from the event go to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation; a charity that was very close to his heart, supporting personal diversity.
