Drag and Drop 8: Halloween help required!

by circuit | Print the article

On Saturday 30th October we will be holding our eighth Drag and Drop fundraiser for Cops and Robbers, and Rock & Roll Circus are kindly allowing us to turn the building into a House of Horrors for the evening.

The donations we normally take cover the cost of hiring the building plus a bit on top for C&R, so we need people to help us make the best of the three rooms with their skillz and any free stuff they can give or lend us.

Rock & Roll Circus has exactly the right atmosphere for Halloween and it would be a shame if we couldn’t make the most of it… it could actually be the best Halloween venue ever!!

Please comment below, or email info at cops and robbers dot net, if you can help with any of the following:

Theming the rooms: We have access to the office, gig room, back room, staircase and toilets. If you have ideas for how to use the space please let us know. Haunted House and evil clowns (continuing the circus theme) have been suggested…

Making decorations: Carved pumpkins, paper chains, severed heads, spiders falling from the ceiling, lightning, thunder and evil laughter echoing around the staircase… you know the dealio.. let us know if you have good ideas or can make this happen!

Donations: There is an excellent party wholesaler in Leeds but we don’t want to spent door donations on this kind of thing if we can help it. If you want to come along to the warehouse, choose some decor and chip in a fiver towards the cost that would be ace. If you want to PayPal a donation specifically for this, please send to info at cops and robbers dot net as a PayPal personal/ gift payment (no fees are taken from these) and mark your donation so we know what it’s for.

Setting up the venue: If you are free from 7pm onwards on Saturday 30th October and could come help set the rooms up, let us know.

Tidying up: We have agreed with R&RC we will help tidy up at the end of the night since all this stuff is likely to make a mess and it would be unfair to leave the staff to pick it all up. We need a minimum of five people covering this job at around 2am, it should only take about fifteen minutes – the more the merrier.

Bands and DJs for the night are being sorted at the moment and will be announced on the gig calendar within the next couple of weeks!
