13 FOR 13! PART 3

By The Black Box

Our 13for13 Green Room take-overs with our besties have concluded as we continue to celebrate our adolescence to raise as much as we can for our 13th Birthday!
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

Claire Bailey got us all busting moves to some Northern Soul tracks spun by Stuart Watson on the night! We are pretty sure there were some sore legs the next day from all the high kicks and moves!

Joe Lindsay went back to his teenage years and delivered the finest 80s indie disco you could possibly imagine. His toastie The Morrissey was a great hit! Full of baloney. And cheese. It’s what he’d want. Probably.

Graeme Watson with pals Joseph Nawaz and John Patrick Higgins did a Stalemates DJ set, Alan Irwin hosted a mid-90s themed Car Crash Karaoke which got the crowd all up and channelling their teenage angst

Laura Firby// Soup DuJour gave us a fun night along with Gemma Hutton and Venus Dupree for a night celebrating all things vulva. With games, music, toasties and dancing- with the important message to love our bodies and all our differences!

Kwa Daniels was our final 13 for 13 Green Room selector and assembled a one-off 13 for 13 band made up of Kaidi Tatham x Utropics. It was a great night and way to conclude the 13for3 bestie takeovers!

Thank you to all our 13for13 besties and everyone who has come, joined in and helped with the fundraising campaign

So far from these nights and only donations we have raised over £3000!

Keep an eye out on our website and social media for upcoming fundraisers here for our 13for13 campaign before we hit 14 years- EEK!
