“TRADITIONAL STREET PARTY”
3rd Sept 2011 12-3pm
Sneinton Hermitage Community Centre is putting on an event that focuses on the generation born in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. We are having a ‘traditional’ street party crossed with a bandstand park event with a twist or two.
One twist is that we are going to be in the Hermitage Square (NG2 4GN) – so it is like an ‘urban’ bandstand event. We have held many street parties on this square before and the atmosphere is always good. For this event we are really going to go to town with the bunting and we are going to get proper bandstand deck chairs from Victoria Embankment bandstand. Have a look at pictures of past festival events here
This event will have a very calm, summery, acoustic, peaceful atmosphere….
We will be selling icecreams and we will have free tea and cake to keep people happy.
On the bandstand we have booked a band of vintage rock and rollers who still can play a scintillating set from the high point of popular music – the 60s. In addition to this we hope to have morris men (and clog women), speakers from the Environmental Society, classical, jazz and folks acts. There will be a Tombola, Tabletop sale, Info Stalls and a BBQ.
We will also have a chill out zone inside the centre with Rev. Bola where “people will first get thoroughly pampered and relaxed with gentle exercises. Then their creative energies will get flowing participating in the over 60s Open Mic music and spoken word event”
How Can You Help?
Most importantly please bring someone along to this event – an elder – maybe a neighbour or a relative. Can you help transport someone to this event?
Now days people in their 60s are young – the ‘babyboomers’. But this event is for everyone! Those that are active, those that are isolated, those that enjoy that era for its ‘retro’ appeal!
Would you like to have a stall at the event? it is FREE! whether it is information for a service or project, or a tabletop sale for example jewellery (however no food allowed).
Do you play in an acoustic band or orchestra that would like to play to celebrate the lives and times of our eldest generations? Maybe you can do some other kind of performance like dance that might be suitable?
Can you help serve teas and coffees, cake and icecreams?
Can you come dressed up in that era’s vintage styles and haircuts?
Do you have any ideas to add to these above?
If yes to anyone these please get in touch! If you know any person or organisation that might be interested in this email then please forward on to your heart’s content! And please print the flyer linked below and put up on your notice board or in your window.
All the best,
