Free art giveaways & ace live music
By Natasha Cutts
This bank holiday the anonymous gift-givers This Must Be For You are here to brighten up your weekend with a free one-day festival dedicated to human kindness. On April 4th they are teaming up with the creative collective YOUNG GOLD TEETH and The Shacklewell Arms to bring you 12 hours of ace live music and free art!
Over 20 young creatives will be exhibiting their work and each has donated a piece to be raffled off for free, alongside a multitude of other goodies, t-shirts and vinyls that are all up for grabs! This festival is guaranteed to restore your faith in humanity.
Live music comes courtesy of some brilliant new acts who are all playing for free to support the kindness cause: Duologue, Tusks, Hundreds, Bewilderbeast, Post Louis, Being There, Shadow Culture and Balloon Ascents. Between them these acts have had support from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash, DIY Mag and Drowned in Sound, so expect some serious musical talent.
Food & Drink
Food and drink will be available all day in The Shacklewell Arms, a super fun space that is well known for some seriously brilliant events. Their kitchen is currently serving burgers that pay homage to the American states (this week it is Idaho), and the bar will quench your thirst with an excellent array of local beer and ales! So kick back in their garden and enjoy the Easter weekend (and hopefully some sun!) in style.
This Must Be For You will also be holding an Easter egg hunt with a difference, so make sure you come down early and find yourself a gift! Enjoy free entry, free gifts, great music, and a few extra surprises on the day.
