A weekend of gigs is taking place in Halifax this weekend in memory of a much-loved teen.

Tudor Tatchell-Evans, the son of Mayor of Calderdale Ashley Evans, died at just 16 from congenital heart disease.

Together with his younger brother Morgan, he was in band Buen Chico, with Tudor singing and playing guitar.
