Beer and Busk: Fundraiser!

Come on down and enjoy the music!

Date: Saturday 26 August
Time: 12 noon - 4pm
Price: Donations welcome

 
 
 
We welcome you along to Beer and Busk, a fundraising event and celebration of acoustic music at The Witham.
 
Beer and Busk is the first ‘big’ fundraising activity we are looking forward to in order to support our bustling arts centre as a whole. Over the coming months into autumn 2017 and beyond, The Witham needs support to continue to offer more high quality artistic and cultural experiences including participation opportunities in the arts. As you may know, we are living in uncertain times, when more than ever, we’re asking ourselves as a country and especially in the North, who we are, and arts centre can be part of that inquiry.
 
With beer samples and tasting available from McColl's Brewery, as well as our usual tasty homemade fare in the café, the acoustic atmosphere will be the icing on the cake for a perfect afternoon of local music making!
 
 

Throughout the afternoon you can take part in a raffle where prizes include the chance to win a package of quality beers thanks to local brewers Danny and Gemma at McColl's Brewery Limited, as well as folk music gift vouchers to redeem against our autumnal gigs, Lady Maisery and Blazzin' Fiddles.

Musicians for the afternoon include:

Malcolm Elsbury
Music at the Heart of Teesdale's Cream Tees
Over The Yardarm
Fiona and Rachel Todd Fiddle Duo
James and Robin Popps, Acousitc Guitar and Vocal duo
Joshua Greenwell, Harpist extraordinaire

Plus more to be announced!

Finally, this is our Audience Development Officer (Maddy's) last event at The Witham - so come along and say goodbye. Maddy would love to see you before she heads off into the world of music education and dissertation writing!
