Event description

Description

We're delighted to welcome singer, songwriter and activist Grace Petrie to Norwich for a special General Election gig/social in support of our candidates Karen Davis (Norwich North) and Clive Lewis (Norwich South). We're also delighted to announce that poet/performer Molly Naylor will be opening the night for us.

Monday 18th November
B2 at The Bricmakers, NR3 4DY

Doors 7.30pm; start 8pm

We're hugely grateful to Grace and Molly for giving up their time to make this possible, and hope you can join us on the 18th.

Due to rules around elections and expenses, this event has to be strictly for Labour Party members and affiliate members only. Names will be checked against the local membership list. If you are a member of the Labour Party outside of the Norwich North or Norwich South constituencies and would like to attend, please email emma@clivelewis.org and let us know which CLP you are a member of. You can join The Labour Party online here: https://join.labour.org.uk/

Concession rate tickets (£5) are available for U18s, students and those on low income. Standard tickets at £10, and a solidarity rate is available at £15. There will also be a bucket on the night for any other donations people wish to make. Money raised will go towards our campaign fund to get Clive re-elected in Norwich South and see Karen overturn the tiny 507 vote majority in Norwich North to become MP for Norwich South.

Any queries, contact emma@clivelewis.org

GRACE PETRIE

A folk singer, songwriter and activist, Grace has been writing, recording and touring relentlessly since she first exploded on to the national protest scene in 2010 with the emotive anthem Farewell to Welfare. She has racked up tour supports with Emmy the Great and Billy Bragg, and made her mark in the comedy scene supporting comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long. She has also collaborated with some of the most respected names in folk, including Leon Rosselson, Roy Bailey and Peggy Seeger.

She’s appeared at eclectic genre-crossing mix of festivals Latitude, Musicport, Blissfields, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Greenbelt, Cambridge Folk Festival, and in 2019 will play The Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival.
Her unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered, have won over audiences everywhere, across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes, amassing her over 19,000 Twitter followers and 8,000 followers on Facebook.

She has quietly become one of the most respected songwriters working in the UK today. She has been frequent guest on BBC Radio 4’s the Now Show, has appeared on Channel 4’s Random Acts and has been featured in The Guardian, Diva Magazine and is currently nominated for the Musician Of the Year Award in the Diva Awards.

In May 2018 a Kickstarter campaign for her first full studio album, after five previous available-at-gig-only albums. She raised £10,000 in just 24 hours and went on to achieve £18.000 in the two week campaign. The album, ‘Queer As Folk’, was released in September 2018 and has gone on to be named a top 10 Folk Album of 2018 by Mojo magazine.
