Macmillan Brick Lane Takeover 2009 announced
Count your lucky stars people because if you missed what you thought was the event of the year with the annual Cooper Hill Cheese Roll then think again because the magnificent people at Macmillan's Cancer Support are organising a brilliant twelve hour festival of music, fun and, most importantly, charity support with their first ever large scale music event which has been Christened the 'Brick Lane Takeover'.
Without a pirate or a dictator in sight, this is the good kind of takeover and it gets kicked off at midday on the 13th of August in London's trendy Brick Lane and its surrounding area for twelve (yes count them) whole hours of entertainment all in the aid of the charity which supports the two million plus people in the UK that suffer from cancer. Seven venues including 93ft East, Café 1001 and even The Macbeth will be packed with a host of big names and fresh young talent including The Rogues, The Citadels (the London guys, not the Irish ones), Sam Isaac and the great Telegraphs. Wow, twelve hours and all that, plus more I hear you shout. Must be pricey though?
Wrong! For the entire twelve hours all you have to do is purchase a ticket for a measly £20, which is then swapped at the venue for a wristband that gives you access to EVERYTHING. So not only is it for a darn worthy cause it's also kind to your own wallet and a steal for what amounts to half a day of entertainment.
If you want any more information on the event, with a full listing of venues and bands playing just hop online at www.bricklanetakeover.com or if you just want to snap up a ticket now then the "tickets" button below for availability.
So there you go, the real event of the summer, and you get to help a charity and not end up smelling like cheese afterwards. A winner ever way you look at it.
