At the launch there will be live music by Miss 600 at 6pm, set against a stunning back-drop of classic vehicles from 100 years of Ford, National Heritage Day. (The Bartons Heritage day is taking place earlier in the day)
On October 22nd the Oxjam Beeston Takeover 2011 will take place in Beeston as part of Oxfam’s National Music Festival and so live music, comedy and poetry is scheduled at over 10 participating pubs, bars and restaurants in Beeston between 12pm and 11.30pm.
Artistes include the Pesky Alligators, Miss 600 and the Phil Langran Band. Nottingham’s Miss Imp will be hosting a comedy afternoon at Latino’s Restaurant with stand-up from Carl Jones.
As a warm up to the festival there will also be two Pub Poetry evenings held in Beeston. These will take place at the Hop Pole on Tuesday 20th September and The Crown Inn on Sunday 16th October. This is an informal and fun evening of strictly comic/ light hearted poetry or short stories – just turn up on the day to listen or bring your own for the open mic part.
The entire event is volunteer run so if you would like to participate or help in any way on the day or leading up to the event, please contact the Oxjam Beeston team.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require any more information.
