Flood Relief Weekender at The Ainsty

As we all know, York has recently experienced its worst flooding in a generation, causing widespread damage and devastation. As the clean up continues, Stuart Kelly, organiser of Apollo Festival, has teamed up with The Ainsty to raise some money to help. A weekend of live music will take place at the pub on the 23 and 24 January.

There will be an amazing line up with more bands released today. Acts include:
The Entertainment Company
The Guv’nors
Van Der Neer
The Mothers
Beth McCarthy
Lost Trends
The Cover Lovers
Minster Conspiracy
plus many many more!
Wendi Hyde of the Ainsty said:
“This line up are all playing for free, the pa has been given for free, we will have cheap cask to raise money, a raffle and my company is giving 8% of profit from the weekend over last year’s figure, which will be quite high, back into the pot. We have had an overwhelming response so any help is greatly appreciated.”
