THE SCRIBBLER’S PICNIC WEEKENDER
Acoustic Revolutions hosted by Crema Central Cafe, No. 2 Baker Street, The Westerton and The Albion Bar, are the latest venues to join in with the largest and most ambitious music festival in Stirling’s history. These venues join The Fubar, Cape, McQ’s, The Crooked Arm and Centre City Soul Club at The King Robert Hotel in hosting fundraising music nights to raise funds for charity The Scribbler’s Picnic on the run up to the self named event on Sunday 19th. Spanning over the course of the weekend, thousands are expected to take part, enjoying music of all genres and raising thousands for charity.
The Crooked Arm and No. 2 Baker Street will also be hosting after parties once the music stops at Stirling County Rugby Club, where the main event is being held.
Organiser Katy Whitelaw is delighted in the support from pubs, clubs and cafes in the area. She said: “We have had a great response from music promoters and licence trade operators in the area keen to get involved and be part of this really special weekend. There is still time to get involved and if there are any other venues out there who want to take part we would love to have you on board.
“As this is the 10th anniversary of the charity, and ten years since my dad ‘The Scribbler’ died, we wanted to make this year extra special and the people of Stirling and Bridge of Allan are key in making that happen. As always they are stepping up to the mark and
going that extra mile to show their support.”
Full details of The Scribbler’s Picnic Weekender will be available on the website http://www.thescribblerspicnic.webs.com and on our facebook page in the next week.
Funds from the weekend will be donated equally between five cancer charities – Strathcarron Hospice, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer Support, Maggies Centre Glasgow and CHAS. And many more groups and charites in the area will benefit by coming along to fundraise for themselves at the main event.
On Sunday June 19th music fans will flock to Stirling to see hundreds of talented performers entertain over seven stages. This year the well established Fubar Main Stage, Tolbooth Stage, Folk Room, Random Rhythms Rock Tent and Acoustic Cafe will be joined by the RoXJAM stage and the Good Vibrations Dance Room. A full line up will be available in the coming days.
The Scribbler’s Picnic will also host the Scotmid Performance Stage featuring displays from local dance and fitness groups, stalls, beer tent and much more to be announced. Festival goers are reminded they can take part in a special wall of rememberance, for a small donation leaving a message about a loved one lost to cancer or for someone who has beated the disease. They are being encouraged to bring along a photo to put alongside their message and this will keep an emphasise on why the day is important to many people affected by cancer.
