The Prodigy fans invited to line Keith Flint's funeral procession route
Fans of The Prodigy's Keith Flint have been invited to line the late frontman's funeral procession route ahead of a private service celebrating his life next Friday (March 29).
Flint's bandmates took to Twitter to describe the procession route, inviting fans to pay their final respects and "raise the roof" for Flint.
The procession will begin in Braintree, Essex, starting from Courtauld Road at the roundabout linking Railway Street and Coggeshall Road. The route will then head along Courthauld Road, right on to Bradford Street and then left on to Church Lane before heading to St Mary's Church in Bocking.
“The church service will just be for family and close friends, but there will be speakers relaying the ceremony outside the church for everyone to hear," his bandmates tell fans a separate tweet.
Following the tragic passing of frontman Flint earlier this month, The Prodigy have cancelled of all forthcoming shows. Having released their latest album ‘No Tourists’ back at the start of November in 2018, the group had dates scheduled for the US in May as well as festival appearances. The Prodigy was also booked to play Glastonbury in June.
London club The Cause launched a fundraising tour this week in honour of Flint. All proceeds from the 11-date tour will be donated mental health charities Mind and CALM.
Samaritans is a charity that aims to help people suffering emotional distress. They are free to contact 24/7 from any UK or Irish phone by dialling 116 123. Head to samaritans.org for further details.
