Competition: Win tickets for Big Country charity fundraiser at Clydebank Town Hall

Scottish rock bands will raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust at charity concert in March.

They are still pulling the crowds after all these years.

And this could be your chance to see legendary Scottish band Big Country play on the doorstep.

The Dunfermline based band are headlining a charity gig in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust at Clydebank Town Hall on Friday March 31.

On song: Vocalist Simon Hough at a recent festival with the band.

And Glasgow West End Today readers have been offered two tickets for the evening. See below for how to enter the competition.

Local promoter Mark Barrow is behind the fundraising event.

"We are hoping to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which is a really worthwhile cause.

"I have visited the Trust and was humbled by the unit, the attitude of staff and young people and their desire to keep smiling despite their own difficulties," Mark said.

The charity is based throughout the UK, including a centre at the Gartnavel Hospital in the West End.

Mark said: "It should be a really great night with some fantastic live music.

"Also playing are Scottish rock band Altered Sky and Chris Ashton from Cumbernauld, who is also known for fronting the band 'Fluorescent Hearts'."

Big Country scored a string of top 30 UK hit singles from the early 1980s - including their biggest UK hit Look Away, which peaked at No7.

Their talisman singer Stuart Adamson tragically took his own life in 2001 in Hawaai.

But the band picked itself up in later years to carry on performing.

The present-day line-up includes original members Bruce Watson and Mark Brzezicki, along with Jamie Watson, Simon Hough, and Scott Whitley.

Mark said: "I really wanted to bring something back to Clydebank to showcase what the town has to offer in terms of the venue.

"I think it will be a great night."

Tickets for the show are priced at £25. Tickets are available online at www.tct.bigcartel.com or at select outlets (see poster).

* You can win two tickets for the show if you answer this question: What was Big Country's highest-charting UK hit single? Send your answers to Mark Barrow, stating clearly in the subject: BIG COUNTRY COMPETITION GLASGOW WEST END TODAY. The winner will be notified by February 28.
