Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse's Parents Hold Month Of Events To Mark Her 30th Birthday

Amy Winehouse's parents have launched a month-long programme of events to mark what would have been the late star's 30th birthday.

The Back To Black hitmaker died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27, three years before her 30th birthday, which she would have celebrated on Saturday (14Sep13).

The singer's parents have put together a number of events together with the charity set up in her name, the Amy Winehouse Foundation, to mark the poignant occasion, including an exhibition of paintings and photographs of the star at the Proud Gallery in Camden, north London, which opened to the public this week (ends15Sep13).

A number of other events will be taking place at venues around Camden, where Winehouse lived before her death, to raise money for the organisation. Several local pubs which Winehouse frequented are hosting charity nights throughout September (13), while a number of restaurants are offering up dishes inspired by the star to boost funds for the foundation.

Winehouse's friends and family also reportedly attended a special event in London on Friday night (13Sep13).
