Sunday for Sammy 2016 

Billy appeared at two sold-out Sunday for Sammy concerts at Newcastle City Hall in February, hosting both shows and fronting the house band for a number of songs.

The bi-annual shows have now established themselves as the definitive Geordie command performance, raising money for The Sunday for Sammy Trust to support fledgling artists from the North East.

Also appearing at the show were ex-Lindisfarne legend Ray Jackson, Auf Wiedersehen Pet stars Tim Healy, Kevin Whatley and Chris Fairbank, Actor Stephen Tomkinson, Tim Healy, Denise Welch and a host of others. 

The show was filmed by Grammy-award winning director Geoff Wonfor, and will be released on DVD this summer.
