Blue Flaming Jazz Quartet Support Railway Children in Euston Train Station

We had the great privilege of supporting the Railway Children charity in their “Three Peaks by Rail”.  You can read a little more of what that’s all about here.  Keep in touch with their exploits on their Facebook page.

Here’s a small video of what we did:

Blue Flamingo The Railway Children

Blue Flamingo will be supporting Railway Children’s ‘Three Peaks Challenge by Rail’ by playing at their send-off from Platform 18 Euston Station on June 20th at 3pm.  It is expected that Transport Minister Patrick McLoughlin will attend.

Blue Flamingo are entrenched in London’s music scene and are passionate about using music to support the city’s charities. Alongside other previous projects, including the Arts Council funded Edmonton Flamingos in North London, Blue Flamingo mix their two greatest loves – music and London – to help make a real difference.

The Three Peaks Challenge is ‘the only event that does the three peaks by rail.  The train departs from Euston on Thursday afternoon, stopping at Crewe on the way to Snowdon which is climbed overnight. The team then head for Ravenglass to climb Scafell Pike before a night on the train up to Fort William to climb the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.’

The Railway Children ‘is an international children’s charity, fighting for vulnerable children who live alone at risk on the streets, where they suffer abuse and exploitation.’

Blue Flamingo is a live music and promotion company, providing bands and live music for events and promoting London’s music scene worldwide.
