Gaslight Open Mic at the Nip & Tipple – 30th November 2017

No automatic alt text available.

Our theme for the November Gaslight is Jazz and Blues.

 

As always Gaslight remains an Open Mic night, if you wish to play other tunes you absolutely can.

There will be a microphone and a guitar available on the night, if needed.

We will have a slight change to the rules: If you are planning on playing us some tunes I will be taking bookings, every musician/act gets 10 minutes and we will put a list together of who is playing when (which will include a few slots for walk ins).

So …. drop me a message if you are interested and we will make a timetable closer to the time.

Music will start at 8pm!

Stories-Of-Sacrifice-PosterP1.1

A recent ICM survey revealed that only 2% of the British public were aware of the extent of contribution of Muslims to World War One (WW1). Given the current political and social climate around the UK and Europe, and with the centenary memorials well under way and set to continue for the next few years, the British Muslim Heritage Centre (BMHC) has been had at work researching and documenting Muslim stories from WW1.
