A two festival dedicated to Sophie to be held in Preston:
Sophies Festival Of Music (from Lancashire Telegraph)
6:48pm Monday 21st January 2008
A TWO-day music event is taking place in aid of the Sophie Lancaster memorial fund.
SOPHIE - Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere - was set up after the brutal attack on Sophie, from Rawtenstall, at Stubbylee Park, Bacup.
Sophie's friend, Anastasia Roe, 23, has arranged the music event on February 1 and 2 at The Venue on Lloyd Walk, Preston.
Anastasia said: "The first night will be a goth night and the second will feature all kinds of different music.
"Sophie was a brilliant girl. When I heard the news I was devastated."
The venue holds a 750 capacity and tickets are available on the door for £3. Friday runs from 8pm to 2am. Saturday is 3pm to 1am.
