VIC­TIM Sup­port Glouces­ter­shire is pre­sent­ing an evening of mu­sic, en­ter­tain­ment and food at Gloucester Brew­ery, Gloucester Docks on Satur­day, Au­gust 24, to raise funds to help lo­cal vic­tims of crime.

We’ve teamed up with Gloucester Brew­ery and In­die Veg­gie Cater­ing to show­case the tal­ents of three very spe­cial lo­cal mu­si­cians for a fun night out.

“Kick­ing things off will be Gina Larner, per­form­ing along­side her folk band fea­tur­ing clas­si­cally-trained vi­o­lin­ist Jes­sica But­ter­worth and drum­mer Leon Boosh Par­sons. Ex­pect stun­ning har­monies and a beau­ti­ful new take on folk mu­sic.

Next up is Midweek, a Chel­tenham­based emo four-piece who have sup­ported the likes of Dead! All Ears Avow and Po­lary and will be sup­port­ing Mal­lory Knox in Oc­to­ber. Head­lin­ing will be Jamie & Dom, with feel good acous­tic cov­ers of pop­u­lar songs from the six­ties to the present day – some­thing for every­one to get up and dance to.

As well as a great night of mu­sic, we have some in­cred­i­ble raf­fle prizes on of­fer and we’re thrilled at the gen­eros­ity of many lo­cal busi­nesses who have do­nated, in­clud­ing Chel­tenham Race­course, Three Choirs Vine­yards, and Marchants Coaches.

All the funds raised by Bands at the Brew­ery will be used to help Vic­tim Sup­port de­liver much-needed help to any­one in Glouces­ter­shire who has been af­fected by crime.

Doors open 7-11pm with tick­ets £10 and £7 for stu­dents with each ticket in­clud­ing one raf­fle ticket.

You can buy tick­ets on­line via Eventbrite and also at the Vic­tim Sup­port Glouces­ter­shire of­ficeon the first floor of East­gate House, in East­gate Street.
