A Night at the Windmill 2020 from isolation
This year we're holding a virtual event combining a zoom party with live-streamed bands in something we're calling A night at the Windmill. We're hoping the bands will actually be live, but playing together from their different locations.
The night will be raising money for Help Refugees Coronavirus Emergency Appeal, recognising that In the face of coronavirus, refugees living in overcrowded, unsanitary camps need our help more than ever. It is also designed to be a tribute to The Windmill, a venue that we love and want to support.
It is an experiment! Things may go wrong!
