Help to raise funds to keep Spirit in his shop and home in Broadway Market, E8 and to prevent his eviction from the business he built from scratch before Hackney sold him out to offshore developers (see for more details)

A percentage of proceeds will also go towards supporting the occupation at Russell Square and towards the Advisory Service for Squatters

See out the term with a good night out and help to support a worthy cause

Donations in advance or at the door (suggested £4)
‘Refreshments’ available all night


  1. Sounds like a reasonable cause. We have problems like that here in Tokyo as well. Most often the government shitstem and the developers have their hands so deep in each others pockets you cant tell one from the other.

    However it must be the conservative in me which says that if one penny goes to squatters and other slack jawed hippie types who wont work then I start getting all uptight.

  2. In order to raise funds to save his shop and home on Broadway Market, Spirit
    invites you to a barbeque and dance.

    This Saturday 29th July

    4pm – 12 midnight

    With Solution Sound System playing Roots Reggae old and new (70’s, 80’s, 90’s,
    00’s, JA and UK).

    To be held @ Space training and resources, 129 – 131 Mare St, Hackney E8.
    Entrance is on Warburton Rd (off Mare St, London Fields pub is on the corner)

    The event will be held in a large, outdoor, covered area so rain will not stop

    Entrance £5


    Unfortunately the organisers have just informed us that due to problems with staffing at the venue, Spirit’s barbeque and reggae dance which was due to take place this Saturday, has been cancelled.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Please, please foward this and spread the word, we don’t want anybody to have a wasted journey.

    Big Respect

    Solution Crew

  4. The next Spirit Gig is on Saturday 3rd February 2007 – 10pm til 6am. Both Solution Sound and Jah Youth roots Ambassador will be playing this latest gig to raise funds for the Save The Spirit Campaign.

    Venue: Silent Whispers Club, 21 -23 Sedgewick Street, Homerton, London E9

    Tickets @ £8 (minimum suggested donation) are available from Spirit’s shop at 71 Broadway Market , London E8 or on the door.

    Hope to see you all there. Following a bad outcome at the Court of Appeal in December, Spirit needs our support more than ever.
