    Spread the word about June ‘JAM’ click for more details. JAM is a monthly meet up in Newcastle all about creating a movement and creative space which brings music lovers together in sometimes secret locations to hear some of the country’s cutting edge artists in order to create an intimate and spellbinding performance. Come create with us Jam is a non profit adventure. All money raised through ticket sales pays the bands, comedians, poets, writers, fire-breathers, and artists etc. This June Jam presents Katie Richardson from Katie and the Carnival Sat June 1st @ 8pm. Early bird invites £5 from link above or £7 on door. Katie and the Carnival’s music is soulful, dark and harmony-driven with influences from indie, folk, rock, pop and torch song. Fresh from supporting Duke Special on some of his Irish tour dates in 2012 she is currently recording and preparing to release new material in 2013. Known for her engaging and creative live performances you never know what you might see at a ‘Katie and the Carnival’ gig – dancing unicorns, TV tents, samba drummers? Anything is possible. Katie is Supported by Stef Campbell. https://m.facebook.com/stefcampbellmusic?refid=17 And if that wasn’t enough Conan will be keeping the dance floor full with his French funky beats mixed with alternative oldies and obscure melodies. WARNING JAM will probably throw you into a mid life crisis questioning why you don’t have this much fun every day!

    FUndraiser for Depaul Ireland and food collection for Storehouse Belfast Walk into a Winter Wonderland and give your tired feet a deserved rest with our magical Christmas event in the Black Box this year... Beautiful music, twinkly lights, mulled wine and mince pies and all for a great cause - PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY NOW! The festive season can be fabulous but it can also be a really difficult time for many individuals and families who struggle to put a roof over their heads let alone feast on Christmas dinner or exchange expensive gifts... Join acts such as Rams Pocket Radio, Katie and the Carnival, Rory Nellis (Seven Summits), Allie Bradley, Eilis Phillips, Amanda St. John, EmRoCo and special guests as we get together to sing some Christmas tunes and raise some money for people who deserve to have as Happy a Christmas as we do... The money we raise will go to Depaul Ireland and we will also be collecting food on the night for Storehouse Belfast... If you have a food donation you can leave it into the Green Room from Midday to 7.30pm or in the main room from 7.30pm http://www.storehousebelfast.com/ Storehouse partners with many different charities and agencies throughout Belfast, who work day in and day out with families and individuals in difficult situations. Through these partnerships Storehouse forms connections with those most genuinely in need. Often, through no fault of their own, or through poor choices, they've found themselves caught in cycles of poverty that seem impossible to break. Storehouse aims to help break those cycles by providing emergency food packages for a set period of time. http://www.depaulireland.org/ Depaul Ireland provides accommodation and key services to people who many others struggle to work with street drinkers, women in prison, families who others have given up on, those with behavioural, self-harm and addiction problems. We work in Dublin, Belfast, Dungannon and Derry/Londonderry to provide accommodation, outreach and training services to homeless and disadvantaged people.
