This Friday 21st August please come along to the Oak Bar (79 Green Lanes, N16 9BU) for The Rainbow Tea Party, a sumptuous collection of new and emerging music talent for just £5 (doors at 9pm, first band on at 10pm, dancing until 3am).
The night is a fundraiser for the London Feminist Network’s Reclaim The Night march, which is in desperate need of funds – and this year has seen yet further increase in the number of the rapes reported, combined with an all-too-predictable decline in funding for managing this violent crisis. March with us on 21st November to say no to violence against women: www.reclaimthenight.org.
Helping us ensure a successful RTN we are very excited to welcome Rainbow Tea Party headliners The Brownies (take a listen at www.myspace.com/thebrownies):
