Preview: Rock The Refectory 2016


Friday 25th November sees the birth of Rock The Refectory, a fundraiser organised by the University of Leeds. With the aim of raising funds for Cancer Research UK and Yorkshire Air Ambulance, the gig is a win-win providing an evening of entertainment, and a contribution to a worthy cause.

Set up by the University of Leeds, the gig will take place at The Refectory in (you guessed it) Leeds, and will host a bundle of regional upcoming bands. Performing at Rock The Refectory will be Evil Blizzard frontman Mike Whitehead’s side project One Sided Horsefollowed by the hotly tipped Citrus Heights. Also joining a bill of prominent locals is Glass Mountain, a four-piece from Bradford; Ginger Tom, who have toured with the likes of The Pigeon Detectives, will take the headline spot.

Alongside the music, there’ll be a variety of performances and so on from the doors opening at 6:30pm, and a mass of prizes up for grabs courtesy of donations from bands and businesses.
