On Friday May 1st, local wildlife charity, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust will be hosting its first Wild Night gig of the year at the Canalhouse Bar in Nottingham. The fundraising music gigs are jointly hosted by The Wildlife Trust and Castle Rock Brewery.
The fundraising gig will feature popular local band the Boat Rockers and musician Murray Hockridge, known for his unique mix of rock, blues and acoustic guitar.
As well as jointly hosting the event, Castle Rock will also be selling beers from their unique ‘Natural Selection’ range – brewed to help raise awareness of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust projects and threatened species.
Tickets are £8 each when bought in advance or £10 on the night. Proceeds will support the Wildlife Trust’s efforts to safeguard threatened species including the barn owl, water vole and brown hare.
Speaking about the event, Communications Manager Erin McDaid said: “These events are a really great way for us to get the message across that raising funds for wildlife conservation can be great fun. Last year’s Wild Nights 0were very popular and we are very much looking forward to letting our hair down at the next one – I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than listening to good music and enjoying a few pints of Castle Rock’s Natural Selection wildlife ales!”
