13 FOR 13! PART 2

By The Black Box

We are continuing to party hard and celebrate our adolescence to raise £13k!
This £13k will help us to improve the venue to create more exciting, weird and wonderful events for everyone to join!

As part of the campaign, we have invited 13 of our best mates to be the boss of their own Green Room night where they pick the entertainment, pull pints behind the bar and design a toastie for the menu

Bob McManus from The Sunflower dazzled with a School prom karaoke night. Major sing-a-long tunes and questionable dance moves where thrown- just like any school prom!

Clodagh Lavelle wowed the room with dance routines, spoken word and absolute throwback nineties grunge vibes. Think My So-Called Life but with glitter and a lot of well-rehearsed synchronised moves

We asked our favourite people from Moon Base to join the fun. A big thank you to Colin Reid, Ri, The Vintage Revue, Colin Hassard, Robert Kane, DANI and the amazing Moon Music group for a star-studded night of music and bingo!

Adam Turkington jam-packed all the lovely things Seedhead Arts collaborates in! With close-up magic, drawings from Real Sketchy, spinning tunes and providing one of the most amazing toasties (so far!)

So far from these nights, we have raised £705! And we haven’t even counted up our online donations from our website, facebook fundraiser and other online donations!

Keep an eye out on our website and social media for the next few Green Room entertainment selectors of lovely weirdness

Your help means the world to us. Here’s to another 13 years x
