A FLINTSHIRE pub is hosting a fun day in memory of a popular musician who died suddenly. 

Liam Mayne, from Flint, tragically died last month - aged just 33. 

Liam, known as 'Willow', was a talented musician, who played in a band.

On Saturday, August 5, the George & Dragon pub in Flint will be hosting a family fun day in Liam's memory.

The event will begin at 2pm and there will be live music throughout the day, with Liam's old band, The Tuning, re-forming for a one-off gig in his memory.

And there will be children's inflatables, a raffle and much more. It is raising money towards getting a headstone at Liam's grave. 

Pub landlady, Lynda Leigh, said: "I’m very proud to be hosting a fundraiser with Nik Lloyd and Adam Leigh at our community pub."

She said Liam "is missed by many and was such a big character" adding: "He never failed to make me smile with his cheeky grin.

"He had a large group of friends so we want this day to be a celebration of his tragically short life. RIP, Willow."


After news of his death was shared on social media, a testament to Liam's character was that hundreds of people sent messages of condolence and support. 

Liam was described as being a "lovely lad" who "always had a smile on his face". 

One person said: "You could never make another like him!"

Another added: "I'm so sad to hear we have lost Liam he always made me laugh and was just lovely."

Liam's sister, Holly, added: "I'm lost without him but overwhelmed with how kind everyone has been and the community of Flint is amazing.

"Please get down and enjoy the day!"

Lynda is appealing for local businesses to support the event. She said: "We are asking for any local businesses to donate any of their products / time as raffle prizes, it would be greatly appreciated."

Anyone wishing to donate items is asked to contact the pub.
