A TALENTED young musician will top the bill at a musical street party organised to celebrate the Queens’s Diamond Jubilee.

Nine-year-old drummer Tamsyn Kerr featured in the Hartlepool Mail last year when she organised a fundraising evening in support of Cancer Research UK.

Tamsyn and her band Hobo Mojo played at the event, which was hailed a huge success.

Shortly afterwards the Lynnfield Primary School pupil got to work in organising her next event, a Diamond Jubilee celebration.

With the help of her parents, Trevor Pickard, 43, and Tracy Taylor, 44, the band and staff at the Nip In Cafe, in Errol Street, the youngster has planned a street party on Monday, June 4.

Errol Street will be closed from noon to 9pm and six bands will take to the stage throughout the day, including Tamsyn and Hobo Mojo.

Face painting, raffles, an auction, games and activities will also be held at the event, with all of the money raised on the day going to Cancer Research UK and Hartlepool Families First.

Dad-of-six Trevor, who is unemployed and lives in York Road, Hartlepool, said: “After the last event Tamsyn said she wanted to organise another fundraiser.

“We thought the Diamond Jubilee was the perfect opportunity.

“We’re really proud of Tamsyn and I think it will be another brilliant event.

“The Diamond Jubilee is something that people will remember so it’s going to be great to celebrate it in this way.”
