Eat Up! For Starters Launch Event!

— Exchange
Workshops to learn and try out instruments
price: £8+fees - but no-one turned away for lack of funds


The Eat Up! For Starters LAUNCH EVENT on 17th November is for people who want to try out instruments in a safe, non-judgemental space. You will be able to learn a little of guitar, bass and drums, learn a song on your favourite instrument, have a chance to perform together at EAT UP (if you want!), share some vegan food with your new pals, and come along to the CHARMPIT, WOLF GIRL and CAT APOSTROPHE show afterwards! What a fun day!

Who is the LAUNCH EVENT for?

Eat Up for Starters is about getting people new to music playing in bands and addressing the lack of diversity in the make-up of some bands within the DIY music community. The criteria below aren’t intended to exclude anyone, but are a direct way of dealing with this. Our final all dayer is for people who haven't been in a band before or haven't tried the instrument they want to play, and if you identify as one (or more!) of the following: disabled (visible or non-visible), trans*, queer, non binary, LGBTQIA+, a person of colour, a woman. So if this is you, please come along and be a part of the EAT UP FOR STARTERS LAUNCH EVENT!

Noone is turned away for lack of funds, and we want everyone to be able to get involved, so please email if you would like to come but can't buy a ticket right now. If you want any support, are looking for band members or have any queries about accessibility at all please post in here or drop us an email at eatupcollective@gmail.com and we’ll do our best to help!

The Eat Up for Starters launch event will be followed by a programme of workshops and events designed to promote musical skills and share knowledge within the DIY music community. We (the Eat Up! collective and our lovely pals from the DIY punk community who will be leading the workshops) hope that Eat Up For Starters will be able to promote diversity within the DIY music community as well as support people new to playing music. The Eat Up for Starters events will allow people to attend workshops and gigs where they can learn new skills and experience making DIY music in a friendly and accessible environment.

There are workshops planned up until March 9th 2019 for guitar, bass, drums, performance and more (keep your eyes peeled for a full programme of events coming soon via our facebook page/emails as you will need to confirm attendance on these separately) and we will list all the workshops separately on here too!) when we’ll be putting on AN EPIC ALL DAYER for all the new bands!
