Banding together for one special evening to help victims
Your guide to everything that’s going on in your area
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.
