Restarted 15 February 2022

Since May 2019 we’ve been running this monthly acoustic music gig, raising money for good causes in our city. We started out at the White Lion in Heeley, a great music-makers pub, but we restarted in February 2022 at The Lescar in Hunters Bar, From April will be at the Nether Edge Bowling Club, a proper community venue. Generally on the second Thursday of each month.

It’s been an absolute joy. Great audiences, lovely musicians playing their hearts out, inspiring local fundraising partners.
Each month we ask two excellent local musical groups or solo performers to join us. It’s a concert format with each guest playing for 30-40 minutes and Break a Leg! play a short ‘resident band’ set at the start of each half.

The loyal volunteers of our Motley Crew ensure that we have professional quality light and sound set up and act as hosts, helping the charity partners to make the most of the opportunity. Crew members include:
  Rebecca Hammond (Key Grip)
  Roger Thurston (Best Boy)
Judy Stewart (fundraiser)
  Andy Kershaw (Master Interlocuter and Charity Hunter)
Karen Hisom (Mistress of Ceremonies)
  And many others.

So please come along. There’s a small admission charge (all going to the charity partner) and there will be opportunities to donate to a great local cause, so bring money and a generous heart.
