The popular Tower Street venue hosted a variety of bands and artists to raise funds for the charity that saves lives at sea.

Brian Barnes of 'The Studio' said "It was so good to open the doors again after 18 months and what better way to promote local acts who all performed brilliantly and for a great cause.

We were delighted with the turnout too and with extra donations for the fantastic Hartlepool RNLI the fundraising for the night reached a collective £900.00."

Hartlepool RNLI Deputy Launch authority Steve Pounder said "This a fantastic donation from Brian and his colleagues at 'The Studio'. It's donations such as this that help us provide the life saving service for those in trouble at sea. We would also like to thank the bands and artists for their involvement in the gig".
