Soup & Song Sundays: Space Shuttle 2020, February 2020
“We absolutely loved playing for you, it was a great afternoon!”, Dawn Hignett, lead singer and all-round music whizz at Dawn and the Embers
Our very own Soup Kitchen with music had a bit of a face-lift and launched in style with its first instalment Space Shuttle 2020. Lots of people came through the door bang on 2pm who had heard of the free food and clothes from Crisis, Whitechapel, the Basement and the Big Issue. Wahey! And most of them stayed on to listen to the music, drum along with Busk With Us, got stuck in at the arts table or stayed and just chilled.
People in need were joined by storm-defying revellers who came to listen to DJ Jo Joy’s cracking afternoon set and the beautiful Dawn and the Embers. Some of them turned up with their kids in tow, who loved the biscuits, the arts table and the Black-E building in general. Everyone was enjoying themselves, which means that our concept works – bingo!
Thanks to all musicians, artists and performers who made this stormy Sunday afternoon special. And of course a huge thank you to our wonderful friends and volunteers, you ROCK!
