Thirty seven bands on three stages kept the music live from noon till gone midnight in aid of the Wolfson Clinic (The Cystic Fibrosis Department at Nottingham City Hospital) and Emanuel House, a charity that supports homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults in and around Nottingham. £3,713.71 has been raised – and it’s rising.
Organiser Will Robinson who is ‘not from London’ says: ” What a weekend we’ve just had! The Waterfront Festival is I’m Not From London’s favourite day of the year, having just celebrated its fifth birthday, it very much sums up what we are about, primarily music, our community and partying as well as raising money for local charities.
“We’ve always liked working with other like-minded groups for big inclusive projects such as
this. INFL’s partners have always been the amazing Audacious Face Events and the Notts culture magazine Left Lion who always excel themselves in sourcing amazing raffle prizes from generous local businesses. Castle Rock is always very good in providing beer for the bands too and the venue is now synonymous with the festival, big up’s to Yvette and the Canalhouse
team for dealing with us all, year in year out.”
The Waterfront Festival is hosted by Yvette Storey and her staff at the Canalhouse, organised by Hannah Larham from Audacious Face and Will Robinson who is I’m Not from London, and supported by Left Lion.
