NEW EETG BAND TO RECORD STAND BY ME WITH LEN AT EETG MEMBER STUDIO - LIGHTSHIP 95!

With just two weeks to go to find 18k we have been pulling out all the stops at Guild HQ. Huge thanks to all who made it through the storm to be aglow in the camaraderie of member solidarity at our social last week. Plans were hatched by Len to record the Ben E King classic Stand by Me! Rehearsals are taking place inside a neighbour’s arch over the next few days with a new EETG band! 

All those who contribute to our crowdfunder before midnight on 1st December will be invited to a LIVE performance of Len singing Stand by Me when we can all sing along together! The date and venue are to be confirmed next week. The recording of the song will take place at Guild members Lightship 95, London's floating studio! We will release the song on social media in the final week of this campaign.

“When the night has come

And the land is dark

And the moon is the only light we'll see

No, I won't be afraid

Oh, I won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand

Stand by me” Ben E King. 

Let’s all stand by each other by taking these arches into community ownership. This way we can keep the distinctive character of the East End alive! When the community democratically decides what rent should be paid by JC Motors, Signature Brew E8 and Tripsace Yoga & Dance they can keep their prices down, employ more locals, pay living wages and focus on their commitment to you their loyal customers! This is about what kind of London we want to live in. By working together, we can stand up to big money, it’s not a fait accompli that big business shapes the destiny of our city. By working together as a community, we can choose the fate of the East End and keep hold of what we hold dear about our neighbourhood. 

 

PLEASE TAKE ACTION THINK OF 5 PEOPLE WHO COULD CHIP IN SOMETHING, EVEN A FIVER AND EMAIL THEM THIS CROWDFUNDER TODAY!
