A concert this Friday from 7.30pm at Stroud’s Little Vic is raising money for Stroud District Foodbank.
The event is being supported by Unite and organised by We Shall Overcome, a movement of musicians, artists and activists who provide practical help to people affected by Government policy and the rising cost of living.
The event is also supported by Safe Space, and ‘parent pub’ the Queen Vic is a designated Safe Space. Chrissie Lowery of Craftology, who founded Stroud’s Safe Space scheme after a spate of attacks on women, said: “Safe Space has just been launched in Stroud and it’s for anyone that’s feeling at risk, under threat or being followed. Look for the logo, get help and be safe.”
Headlining the event is John D Revelator, a Glastonbury-based band playing upbeat festival anthems with a punk soul and a folk backbone.
The support act is up-and-coming Stroud band Tortellini, whose sets at Randwick Wap and Stroud Pride earlier this year went down a storm; poet and performer Elvis McGonagall will be the MC.
Advance tickets are £10 plus booking fee from tinyurl.com/wso-stroud, with concessions on the door, or pay what you can afford and bring a donation for Stroud District Foodbank.
