BobFest was nothing short of an unequivocal success. Getintothis’ Tom Adam brings you more pictures from an event that showed Liverpool’s moral and musical strength.
Liverpool’s best and brightest came together to celebrate the strength and courage of Bob Picken, a prominent musician diagnosed with a rare brain tumour.
Rallying around one of their own, an affable and popular man, BobFest aimed to raise funds to ensure the future financial security of a man whose musical influence in Liverpool and beyond is far-reaching.
Getintothis’ Tom Adam caught the best of the acts and the well wishers, fans and curious who attended.
