A NIGHT of music will pay tribute to a teacher who lost his battle against pancreatic cancer.

The After Dark Band will take to the stage alongside other musicians to honour former Arrow Vale teacher Rhett Butler at Lickey End Social Club on Saturday, November 15.

The 38-year-old, who was a former student at the school, passed away in May 2012 after fighting cancer since October the year before.

He was well known member of the music scene and played his last gig in the summer of 2011 with close friend Nigel Clark from band Dodgy.

Carl Anslow, guitarist for The After Dark Band, said he wanted to set up a charity event after Mr Butler encouraged him to get into performing.

The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £5, with the proceeds going to Pancreatic Cancer UK.
