Kicking the night off will be the fabulous WILL ROUD (of Coate)

In keeping with The Brewery’s ethos entry will be FREE. However there will be koha jars on the bar of which 100% will go to building a new self-sustaining housing facility for the inhabitants of Familia Moja Childrens Home. Donations of even the smallest amount are greatly appreciated.

Come have a party and feel good about supporting some cute-as-beans kids.

Do check out the bandcamp pages if you have not previously, there is some really great material available for free or very cheap.

More information on this great cause, details on how to come along to help build the new orphanage and other events we’re running in support of Familia Moja can be found at:

Although they haven’t got a license yet, friday night they put together a brilliant all-ages opening party featuring Valdera, the Transistors and Bang! Bang! Eche! which had the whole places pumping and the kids climbing the walls – check out some of the photos I managed to snap during this cracker of a show, and look out for future events at the Archive.
