Music 4 Meningitis is back in play this Saturday, for the fourth annual event of type – that type being a ‘non-profit musical mash-up.’
The MK11 Club in Kiln Farm is to host the big bash.
From 3pm, a five hour slot will work well for the family entire with live music spilling from all over the place genre wise: Indie, folk and punk will figure and you’ll have a selection of DJs delivering chilled out beats too.
But music isn’t the only thing on this early session agenda: Yoga workshops, a snooker competition, face painting and craft fair will jolly things along.
Non-animal testing superior cosmetic brand Lush will be setting up a temporary base too – with
a bath bomb workshop .
An undercover, outdoor barbeque will be filling bellies as well.
So what if it’s November? It’s still fine to throw another corn cob or veggie nibble on the hot stuff!
Then, from 8pm when the children have to go home, music is the priority with two rooms of ‘musical insanity’ – they are the organiser’s words, not ours.
In Room One? ‘The Basslines drop, the ravers come out of the woods and it’s time to get down to the underground,’ with deck deliveries by those who perform under the Beatcheck, Footwork, J14, Bootlegging, Slam and, wait for it, the monkey tennis group banners.
If things get a little too hyper, Room Two will chill you out with J14 bods plying the assembled with a musical mix of ska, dub and reggae.
“Music 4 Meningitis started as a small party to raise money for a charity close to our hearts,” said organiser Cat Barker.
“Seeing it grow into an all-out family fun day crossed with a deep down and dirty rave up in incredible.
“Everyone is welcome, no matter if you are four, or 40.”
Entry is by donation on the door, with a suggested price of £5 or £10 per family.
