Event description


You are invited to a different kind of musical event hosted by the Bagel Shop.

Rhythm and Roots is set to be a beautiful gathering of powerful, emotive and stirring sounds to fundraise for two inspiring causes. This event is part of a response to our awareness of the state of ecological and social crisis upon the Earth. We see the threat of extinction from the climate emergency, and every day we witness the oppression of vulnerable people through an intolerant system.

We are holding this event as part of our initiative to act on these heart-breaking, hard to swallow truths. With this intention in mind, we have invited a collective of incredible medicine musicians to make some noise to aid our mission. They carry with them songs that will move us all, sounding the call of the Earth and an elevation of human consciousness that stands for change. This is sure to be a gathering of wonderful souls and sound people with positive intentions. It will be a gift for our hearts and ears, including live music, DJs and the opportunity to shake and stomp our cares away in a euphoric Ecstatic Dance session. It is our wish that the energy created from this event will seed a great deal of good deeds and help many people.

To support this event, The Bagel Shop will be a offering a delicious free Vegan Bagel for every ticket sold. **SOME TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR, HOWEVER THE VEGAN BAGEL MIGHT ONLY BE AVAILABLE FOR PRE-PURCHASED TICKETS (we need to know numbers).

There will also be an array of other treats, including Ceremonial grade CACAO and swanky fruit mocktails available for purchase. All are welcome, all are related. See below for our causes and line up.

Doors open 6.30pm / Opening ceremony 6.45pm / First act 7.00pm




The Fellowship of the Trees is one branch of a conscious environmental action group of individuals called to ground their care for the Earth and bring it into action. Inspired by our deep love for the Earth, sacred ways and the recent call to action from Extinction Rebellion, we are a meeting of minds and hearts in celebrated co-creation. Our project is dedicated to the intentional planting of mass trees in response to the climate emergency. We are a collective of dedicated people from all walks of life, celebrating diversity, difference but with a shared dream. We are all ready to step up and own responsibility for our earth. Each tree we plant will carry a prayer and an intention for the Earth, we will plant trees giving thanks for our ancestors, and with hopes and wishes for those yet to come. Our over-arching mission is that our work may be part of the SOLUTION to the current ecological crisis. We plant seeds of hope in these times of uncertainty. We hope to inspire solidarity in communities and embody authentic guardianship to bring the earth and our minds back into balance. In the longer term, we see this expanding into a fully thriving diverse guardianship platforms welcoming other committed, courageous and caring individuals to form new Fellowships in all elements and areas. We want to create platforms that make it easy for everyday people to step into caring action in support of community.

In the first instance and the first wave, our project will target areas where it is free and available to plant trees. The funds we are raising from the crowdfunder will go towards the costs of the trees, promotion, our expenses and tools in being able to achieve this mission. We shall plant as many trees as possible and build strong communities.

In the second greater wave, we intend to use the funds that have lovingly been shared with us to buy land in which we can plant our trees, and they will be protected. On an even grander scale, our prayer is that we can collaborate with community and social projects, empowering vulnerable individuals and children to join us. We aim to promote opportunities, supporting those who may currently be in darkness or feel lost to find direction in offering service to these sacred lands.

As part of this wider vision we would also hope to create space in which we can practice sacred ceremony, prayer and offering to the Earth. We would aim to use our protected lands as a safe space for healing and for the return of tribal ways of being. We would hope that the Guardianship platforms expand and multiple Conscious actions were carried out together.


Earthstar C.I.C’s vision is to create a safer future for our planet by providing a web of support in the North of England for the most vulnerable among us whilst replanting our forests with much-needed trees. We aim to do this by offering services to the homeless and vulnerable which coincide with economically friendly living. We envision the construction of mobile shelters in cities and the transformation of derelict buildings into well-being centres offering high-vibrational food, haircuts, shelter, showers and support from trained staff. Eventually we wish to employ resources into the building of replanting of our country’s forests, namely Sherwood with the intent of opening job opportunities in this work for those without. By supporting the most vulnerable, we visualise the support of our planet.
