Bookcafe Winter Acoustic Festival Sat 8th December 2012
Saturday 8th Dec 11am till 11pm The Bookcafe Derby
From 11am till 11pm Derby City centre will see 20 of the finest acoustic acts from the Midlands performing at this free festival at The Bookcafe. This is the second such event, planned to be held each season, and builds on the phenomenal success of the Summer Acoustic Festival Sept 1st 2012.
Ahar! I’m, compering the evenin’ run, which is inside. Tis a wise move. All the acts are marvellous and it’ll be a fine day – come along!
The event is free, runs from 11am till 11pm and provides a platform for the areas up and coming artists as well as supporting a local charity. This season the charity to benefit from promotion and fund-raising will be Treetops hospice.
Treetops in Derbyshire provides respite and palliative care for adults with illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis. It also provides help and support to their carers and families.
