Drop Battles II - Coming Soon

The Drop Battles return to Belper ... This time The Drop Inn is the proud host. It's the first time we have done anything like this, really looking forward to it! For anyone that is unfamiliar with DROP BATTLES it is RAP BATTLES. Each person will have a time limit to freestyle lyrics, the crowd present vote people through. The winner of each round works their way up a table this an overall winner is decided. Hope that is explained o.k. If not type in don't flop into youtube.

After the DROP BATTLES we've got PV (a new local dubstep collective) and the legendary SHOOKZ performing bass heavy DJ sets.

As we love changing our space with small art installations and themed parties we're attempting to build an apocalyptic city scape around the stage.
See what happens, eh? Wait for the photo's to see if we put that off.

The event is on the 8th Sept, please come along. It's +18's fundraiser with a bar and late license. Hope to see some of you there.

This event was organised to help support one of our friends and old members who is battling cancer. Everyone pulled together to help out, but the main organiser for the event was Laura Seal, she deserves a massive thank you and applause for putting this event on.

We chipped in to help one of our friends and old members with this event by lending them some stage lighting.

We had an amazing day of bands organised by Barrington from sound-hub.

The night was a good fun as well with some heavier bands for entertainment. In the background you can see our small but handy contribution of lights.

Not sure how much exactly was raised but we hope you raised loads for this heart warming good cause.

Casino Night

The Cross Keys, Market Place, Belper put on a great fundraiser night for us. They organised entertainment from Joe (James Warner Prophecies ), Jasper (JasperITCOO) and a Frank Sinatra tribute act.

There was also loads of casino style games were people could by Chips for a few £'s, the person with the most chips at the end of the night won a prize.

It was a great atmosphere and loads of fun, we hope they do another one. The Cross Keys raised
£120 for our charity, huge thank you to all the staff at The Cross Keys for putting the fundraiser night on for us. We will let people know what we spend it on, we have to ask the Youth what they would like first.

This is a picture of the Olympic 2012 Mural we did for the Vaillant group.

It was up ready for their family fun day, which the put on biannually to raise money for two chosen charities.

We were one of their chosen charities this year, and received a whopping £6,000 of the funds raised on the day. Received with a huge Thank you to all who turned up on the day, and to Vaillant for choosing our Charity to support this year.

The Olympic mural will stay up there till the next big event, so two good years of it.

Litter Pick

A team of volunteers and young people from the Drop Inn teamed up with members of Belper Town Council and other volunteers to do a huge litter pick around Belper town centre and the River Gardens.

It was all to give the town a final good clean up and polish before the Britain in Bloom judges arrive.
Good luck Belper we are proud to be involved.
