A THREE-hour showing of the Beefy Boys films will raise money in memory of a much-loved colleague and friend.

On Sunday it is a year since Alex Evans died aged 31 at his home in Hereford.

He was a valued member of the team at the Beefy Boys restaurant at The Old Market Shopping Centre and at The Courtyard Theatre.

Alex was also well-known for his role within the county's performing arts community.

While at The Beefy Boys he worked on and starred in a number of short films for the burger company called The Tale of the Devil's Cookbook.

Lee Symonds, from The Beefy Boys, said: "We are commemorating him by showing The Devil's Cookbook at The Courtyard, which is the project that he was the star of before he died.

"The show starts at 7pm and is a whopping three hours long with a 15 minute interval in the middle.

"Proceeds from the showing will be donated to The Alex Evans Fund, which has been set up to help actors and actresses develop their skill in the performing arts and also for counselling to help young people who struggle with depression."

The proceeds will also be split with The Courtyard. It will be the first showing of the unreleased grand finale.

Watch the film on May 21 at 7pm at The Courtyard in Hereford. Tickets are £6 each from www.courtyard.org.uk/events/the-beefy-boys-the-tale-of-the-devils-cook-book/
