Deep Hum special raising money for those effected by the flooding in the Calder Valley
We’re putting on this Calderdale Flood Fundraiser next week at The Social. It’s only £5 to get in and Smoke Fairies will be playing live with Hayley Ross and the Heavenly Jukebox DJs.
This time last year we were up in Hebden Bridge for the start of Heavenly’s 25th celebrations and were supposed to be up there again later this month for a Caught By The River event. It’s an amazing place and we met some really wonderful people whilst we were there and got to hang out at what is probably the UK’s best venue, Hebden Bridge Trades.
The scenes of damage over Christmas were pretty shocking. It’s going to take a long time for the town and surrounding area to recover – lots of people have lost their homes and businesses. Hope you can make it down.
There’s a link to their fundraising page below or grab and ticket and head along
In 1999 The Social opened in Little Portland Street. The brainchild of a record company whose offshoots included a hugely successful underground club night, The Social was set up with a simple manifesto – to provide great music and better booze to anyone who fancied tripping through the doors.
15 years later and still run by the original team who created it – Heavenly Recordings & The Breakfast Group – the bar is an award winning London institution. Designed back then by a partnership of David Adjaye and Will Russell (now of Pentagram) with the proviso of withstanding nuclear attack or – at the very least – the worst that people could chuck at it, The Social has launched over a million hugely successful hangovers.
