Hi,
Please move this post if it's in the wrong area.

I'm thinking of trying to organise a possible Hawkwind fans get together in early February next year in Bradford at the 1in12 club in Bradford. This is to try to guage interest, and if it's worth doing.

It's only in vague planning at the moment but the idea would be to open the club during the afternoon (say 3ish onwards) in the Bar and Cafe, and then have Do Not Panic (the tribute act) play in the evening on the gig floor.

Thinking of making the daytime event free, and charging a fiver for the band in the evening to encourage attendance overall, with the band finishing about 1030 to allow travel for people'

The 1in12 club is a collectively run venue by all the members of the club, it has been around for about 35 years now, and in the present building for about 28 years, it has a cafe/library floor which can show films, a bar on the 2nd floor and gigs are on the first floor. Cheap drinks - it's Sam Smiths on draft but we're not tied to them so have a wide variety of bottles and spirits, it's definitely in the Do-It-Yourself ethos of Hawkwind.

I'll post this onto some of the facebook pages as well, but wanted to know what people thought on this forum.

Jon

That's about a mile from where I was born! (No blue plaque as yet but I'm hopeful)

Excellent idea!

Which day are you planning this event?

I'd love to go.

Sorry, yes I should have said it will be a Saturday. Aiming for either the 11th or 18th of February. 18th is better for me in that I get paid on the 15th so would have more spare money for yet more Hawkwind tat. I'll confirm later though. Trying to see if it's doable first.

I assume then HairyGT4 that you were born in St. Lukes then!

Is this get together still on the cards? Bradford is a great place for an afternoon/evening out. Some decent bars on North Parade and a few more due to open in the Underground area before the year is out.
I could pull one or 2 people along to this

Provisionally yes, aiming for 18th February, need to sort out a couple of bits first logistically at the 1in12 club.

This event is definitely happening now, facebook link here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/222206638226475/

For those of you without that particular social media site, here's the details:
An Afternoon/Evening of Hawkwindy goodness in the world famous 1in12 Club in Bradford.
Do Not Panic are a great tribute to the Mighty Hawkwind so to get ready for the March gigs and album by coming to watch some of their finest songs performed in the intimacy of the 1in12.
An early start to the event to allow people to get together, swap or sell items (space will be available) drink cheaply and generally chill before the gig. Live videos in the Cafe on the big projector screen along with other related things to watch.
Door price £5.00/£6.00 members/non-members, it's cheap to join this co-operatively run venue.
Support band to be confirmed yet.
Any profits will go to the 1in12 Record Collective towards getting another compilation album out showing off some of the finest acts that have played the 1in12 in the past few years.

Looking good. Shame I'm the other end of England else I'd be there. Good luck with it.

I'm coming to this with 5 others. We're all looking forward to it (well maybe not quite all, but most of us are!)

Great to meet John who put this event on. Never knew the 1in12 existed despite several visits to Bradford. Must investigate other events and membership.
Managed to grab a pint in The Castle before the gig and had the DJ play Silver Machine for us!
As for Do Not Panic, they were great. I would see them again and recommend them to anyone.
