On Friday 29th March Stitch is hosting a very special event to celebrate their 2nd birthday: bringing together five of the best nights that London has to offer under one roof, to create one hell of a party and planting a target minimum 10,000 trees with the proceeds. This is partying with a purpose.
Live bands, courtesy of Strum! will kick the evening off at 9pm moving through to DJs who will keep everyone partying until 4am. Thanks to help from our team of amazing collaborators: Bixon, Under the Tree, Inverted Audio, Flock and Louche the line up is pretty special.
It took a while to find the perfect venue but you can't get better than Red Gallery – a fantastic blank canvas space located at 1 – 3 Rivington Street, in the heart of Shoreditch and just a short walk from Old Street. The venue is spread over two floors, has a capacity of four hundred and a proper smoking area out back.
The Stitch team & artists are working on a variety of design ideas for the space and the boys from Bassline Productions, who also do Noisily Festival, will be taking care of the lighting and audio (Funktion One's, obviously) to make sure that everything looks and sounds spectacular.
A percentage of every pound spent at the bar and from ticket sales goes towards planting trees with partner WeForest. WeForest is an international organisation dedicated to sustainable reforestation. Money raised from this event will go towards their tree planting project in Ethiopia which is geared towards stopping soil erosion and empowering single mothers and widows to be self-sufficient and pay for medical care.
Think we've covered everything? Not quite – Stitch is determined to prove that you can serve organic, ethically sourced drinks affordably. In light of this, the bars will be well stocked with a variety of different beverages all priced around the five pound mark.
What better could you be with yourself on the evening of Good Friday? Come and get loose with us and do some good for the planet at the same time. Simple.
