Beat the Streets will be taking over some of Nottingham’s biggest venues once again in January, to raise money for Framework.
Rock City, Rescue Rooms, The Bodega and Rough Trade will come together to host the festival across five different stages. All proceeds raised from ticket sales, merchandise and bar sales in DHP venues will be donated to Framework; the Nottinghamshire charity dedicated to bettering the lives of homeless people.
After raising a grand total of £167,000 over the previous two events, the third edition of the festival will bring some of the most in-demand acts together on one bill, all of whom will play a significant part in helping the festival to achieve its main aim: helping to eradicate homelessness in the city of Nottingham.
Last year’s proceeds enabled Framework to open the doors of their Sneinton homeless shelter all year round, which has provided ten direct access accommodation places for people sleeping rough in Nottingham. Beat The Streets is aiming to continue with this unprecedented momentum at its forthcoming instalment.
We are incredibly proud to announce that some of our very own students have been added to the line-up, including Velvet Blush, Black Cats and Magpies, Circle of Light, Gadzz and friends [Gaddiel Nketia] and Grace Lee.
