The Beatyard

Beatyard At The Twisted Pepper

The BeatyardBodytonic‘s next Beatyard event will be held this Saturday, 13th March, at The Twisted Pepper.

Bodytonic‘s next Beatyard event will be held this Saturday, 13th March, at The Twisted Pepper. The Beatyard is a “… unique mix of food, music, talks, showcases, workshops and a bit of banter“.

Taking place on a monthly basis on Saturday afternoons in the Twisted Pepper – the idea is simple: The Beatyard is about bringing music & multi-media lovers together for an afternoon to share music, art, multimedia and ideas via education, inspiration & perspiration. For the most part, the aim to put music lovers in a space where they’ll meet like minded people and hopefully discover something new and different.

For each Beatyard, we’re also looking to help raise awareness, money and equipment for a cause or charity that has music in mind. For the first Beatyard, we helped out the Scoop Foundation’s project in Crannog Nua; a high support facility in Donabate which caters for young people with emotional and behavorial difficulties. For 2010 , over the course of 12 Beatyards we’re aiming to raise enough money , donations & equipment to fund a full fleged music & multi-media studio in Dublin City.

The lineup for the day is:

The Cafe: Music & Food Fair with sellers including…
Kling & Skunkfunk
