Brewery Centre to Host ‘Rhythm and Booze’ Charity Weekend

Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, UK – From the 12th to the 14th November, The National Brewery Centre, Burton, is hosting a weekend’s entertainment to raise much-needed funds for local charities. Entitled ‘Rhythm and Booze’ the events will see a number of renowned musical performers entertain the audiences, who will be enjoying a special range of cask ales and freshly-cooked food, prepared by the Centre’s celebrated head chef, Russell Smith. Friday, 12th November will see Dr. Busker - the now legendary musician who’s said to be ‘Britain’s Last Victorian Pub Pianist’ - perform with his wide repertoire of songs to suit all tastes, including a large number of his own songs, accompanied with great skill on piano-forte and squeezebox - the perfect accompaniment to a pint or two of real ale. It promises to be an evening of musical mayhem. Tickets cost £6.50 in advance or £7.50 on the door, with all proceeds being donated to charity. Doors open at 7pm and goes on till late. Saturday, 13th November is Live Music Day – starting 12pm with an afternoon performance by Dennis Clayton. Tickets for this show will cost £2 and all proceeds will be donated to charity. In the evening, the volume will get turned up to 11 with a headlining performance by Tilted Smile, a fast, visual and edgy rock and roll power trio that hails from the Midlands. Since forming in 2005, the band has been hard at work building its ever-growing army of followers. In 2006, Jack Daniels voted Tilted Smile the UK's Best New Band which led to a tour of Nashville and Memphis Tennessee, where they recorded at the legendary Sun Studio. Tilted Smile will be supported by Fantastik 4, a local group that has been described by one reviewer as: “Roaring guitars, fast beats, powerful layered vocals cut-through with anthemic melody, F4 perform with confidence and charisma." Also supporting Tilted Smile will be Treacherous, another local band that will guarantee to rock the rafters of The National Brewery Centre. Tickets cost £6.50 in advance or £7.50 on the door, with all proceeds being donated to charity. Doors open at 7pm and goes on till late. Sunday, 14th November will be a chance to come along to the National Brewery Centre, drink up the remaining speciality real ales and get into the Brewing and Heritage Galleries with a special offer of ‘two for the price of one’. Keeley Ball, manager, said: ”We’ve catered for wide-range of musicial tastes during the weekend. From the old-time music of Dr. Busker, through to the contemporary rock music of Tilted Smile, there should be something for everyone.” “What’s more, we have arranged for a whole host of speciality guest ales that will ensure a merry time is had by all and we’ll be raising money for the various charities, which can’t be bad! “Tickets are selling well, so I would urge anyone interested in coming along to secure their tickets as soon as possible.” For further information and tickets, either call into The National Brewery Centre or telephone 01283 532 880.
