Festival booker Joseph Patten said: “After being away for a year, we can’t wait for Beat The Streets 2022. We’re immensely proud of the money and awareness we’ve been able to raise to improve the lives of homeless people in Nottingham, and it will be a wonderful celebration to have a day of live music & giving-back happening in our community again.”
Launched in 2018, Beat The Streets has brought the music community in Nottingham together to raise awareness of and funds for a vital cause; providing a stellar day of live music in the process. The three successful events over the past four years have seen over 10,000 tickets sold, incredible performances from the likes of Sleaford Mods, Jake Bugg, Saint Raymond, Evil Scarecrow, Ferocious Dog & Rolo Tomassi, and over £270,000 raised across ticket, bar & merchandise sales for Framework.
Funds raised by Beat The Streets so far have gone towards keeping the Sneinton Hermitage shelter open all year round; accommodating more than 60 high risk service users, employing two full time mental health workers to provide much needed support to over 1,500 service users with complex needs including substance misuse, and supporting the charity & its service users throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
A spokesperson for Framework said: “Beat The Streets is Framework’s biggest and most well-known partner led fundraising event of the year. It raises much needed money to support our work with homeless people in Nottingham and beyond, and allows us to provide additional mental health support to those who need it most.”
