Catch Core Bandits on Friday (Nov 13) at the Golden Lion Tap

A group of friends have organised a packed charity DJ night at the Golden Lion in Barnstaple on Friday (November 13) in memory of a pal who died last new year’s eve.

The Core Bandits event featuring hardcore, hardstyle and dubstep DJs is in memory of Matthew Smith, who was just 28 when he died.

Proceeds will go to Diabetes UK.

Organiser Reece Lee said: “Matt was a really fun character. He never let anyone down and always a smile on his face whatever he was feeling.”

The night runs from 7pm-1am and includes DJ Live Wire featuring Fluid MC plus dubstep from Damascus and many more.

There is also Little Jack and Mike Antix featuring Sammy D plus Poderos featuring Swifty and DJ Masterz featuring MC Gonze.
