Okay I have managed to come up with a solution for this. It gives me the result I need, whether or not it is the best solution I don't know. If anyone has an improved way do please let me know.

PHP Code:

require('connections/connection.php');//your own database connection script here///////////////////////////////////

/////Select statement to get the months and years for the events///////////////////////////////////////////////////
$m_query             =    "SELECT DATE_FORMAT(from_unixtime(eventTimestamp),'%M %Y') AS eventMY FROM events WHERE eventTimestamp >= UNIX_TIMESTAMP() ORDER BY eventTimestamp ASC ";
$m_result            =    mysql_query($m_query) or die('cannot get results!');//Month and Year from timestamp in DB//
while($monthyear    =    mysql_fetch_assoc($m_result)){
$rows[]                =    $monthyear['eventMY'];//Declare Array//////////////////////////////////////////////////////
$MY                    =    array_values(array_unique($rows));//Duplicate Months removed and array keys reset//////////

/////Select statement to get events////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
$e_query             =    "SELECT eventTitle, eventLink, DATE_FORMAT(from_unixtime(eventTimestamp),'%D') AS eventDay, DATE_FORMAT(from_unixtime(eventTimestamp),'%M %Y') AS eventMY FROM events WHERE eventTimestamp >= UNIX_TIMESTAMP() ORDER BY eventTimestamp ASC ";
$e_result            =    mysql_query($e_query) or die('cannot get results!');
$events        =    mysql_fetch_assoc($e_result)){
$event[]                =    $events;

/////Display Month and Year with events for each Month below///////////////////////////////////////////////////////
foreach($MY as $my){
$event as $e){
$e['eventMY'] === $my){
$e['eventDay'].", ".$e['eventTitle'].".<br>";
And an example of the output.....
