Belper Against Homelessness (Event)

On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September, over 40 artistes will be performing to “make a stand” against homelessness.

The event is being hosted by The Railway Hotel on King Street and is a Pay What You Can event to raise money via Musicians Against Homelessness so admission is free, but contributions are requested. Starting at midday each day, the performances run until 11pm.  The proceeds will go to local charities combatting homelessness.

All of the artistes are performing free of charge, with the line ups organised by Jake Farrell and Natalie Bestwick.

This will be Familia Roots last ever gig, so this is also a final chance to see them.

There is a Facebook page for the event.
