‘Love Motown’ is a live music experience featuring an incredibly talented cast of musicians and vocalists. The Love Motown collective have been working together since 2007 and the music is carefully selected to showcase talent, and uplift and engage the audience.

The set takes you through the biggest Motown hits in history performed by a fantastic 8 piece band and some of the finest vocalists the UK has to offer.  ‘Love Motown’ proved to be an absolute winner with the sell out crowd at the latest high profile fundraising event organised Carolyn Hughes PR  in association with Marcus Collins and Cash for Kids.   The event was supported by entrepreneur and Cheshire Housewives star Dawn Ward and husband Ashley and hair stylists to the stars Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko and hosted by Simon Ross.
