soooooo..... it looks like we have a decision to make about getting forest lager.

i went to the licenscing folk and they reckon we have a good shot at a licensce.

and i, for one, would like to get the forest beer because it is cooler and just seems right to have.

i am thinking that maybe we should go for it. am i stupid? maybe?

we have, at the moment 1,000 beers. We can store about 2,000 in that fridge.

which means we could probably order 4,000 - 5,000 beers and be safe. we then have a year to shift them which shouldn't be that hard.

help?

beer issues!

williams bros broke their machine and so will not be able to get us our beer. (why is nothing easy?)

anyway:
plan a: buy / sell only big beers at a reduced price £2.90?

plan b: buy cheap shite beer from the cash and carry. sell it for £2.20

or both?

plan plan plan?

What about the Russian stuff that OD was selling? If it looks weird and no one knows it, we can sell it for more than we could something which is known to be cheap.

I say sell it slightly cheaper - £2.90. It is a good post-festival price.

Postby ravanwin » Thu Sep 20, 2007 12:20 pm

here is a rough idea of what we've got: lots of gaps though

thursday the 11th

Down:
4pm: emily’s Fudge Performance! a short Taster! "Let them Be Cake" conceptual performance art.
8pm: John Peel Day: rare footage, rare recordings and many live bands

Upstairs:

9.30 – 11.30 Pm: poetry tree
a workshop and performance. poetry and music and creative juices all over your face.

<empty>

Friday Night:

4pm: craft workshop. masks, bags etc.badge maker blah blah

Billy Liar
Asazi Space Funk Explosion
Black Diamond Express,
Jed Milroy


Upstairs:

<Unconfirmed>

a program of theathre, and quiet folky stuff?
need to plan this!
we could also put SILK / frog pocket / exploading dj up here?
we have much space upstairs for friday and sat! what we say?


Sat:
Record Launch:
John Crave (satellite)
Hemulen (via satellite)
Pendulumns
Kyon & Dyms
Black Cat

Upstairs:

noon: let them be cake workshop!

2pm - 4pm
car boot / jumble sale with craft corner and performance art:
+
Mike Bodage! performance art
+
Danny Mullins at the CarBoot Sale! + Free Loadin’ Frank (action: andy to contact danny and freeloadin’)

9pm:
<unconfirmed>

Cammy Watt and anti-folk? (ryan to contact!)
+ teatere and stuff?
we could also put SILK / frog pocket / exploading dj up here?
we have much space upstairs for friday and sat! what we say?

dan / chris: hit us with upstairs ideas?

Sunday:

Downstairs:

3pm – church of toast / crap-o-ieara demo

8pm – close: Open Mike and Terry’s dirty caberet! (a real freak out.)
: feat. let them be cake!
The idea here: run an open mike of sorts BUT stack the whole evening with weird and odd performance art that will jarr and confuse when combined with the singer / songwriter. we shoud push for as much freakey out of context stuff as possible that night.

actions: contact arty people get on it? possible?


Upstairs:

Roller Disco! from 9 – close!

press release

Postby ravanwin » Mon Sep 24, 2007 4:22 pm

here's the press release:

have a look and suggest additions / subtractions.

Blender Press Release

For over 7 years the Forest (3 Bristo Place) has provided an egalitarian art space, free internet access, free events, inexpensive veggie grub, and, according to The List, “the most bohemian environment in Edinburgh.” During that time The Forest has fostered such artistic talent as Aberfeldy, The Very, St. Jude’s Infirmary and The Abdominal Showmen.

“Now,” says Dan Seizure— control freak, local musician, political Svengali —“We want to take it to the next level. We’ve cleared the baddie on level 3, and now, we just want to freak out and f-ing party!”

On the weekend of October. 11th – 14th the Forest will be getting a liquor license (usually it’s BYOB), staying up late (3am) and housing events in their majestic church hall. Things kick off on Thursday (Oct. 11th) with our tribute for John Peel Day. Festivities start at 7pm and include a documentary, hot new live acts from the emerging Scottish scene, as well as Djs spinning tunes at the incorrect speed. Adam Neil, the event’s curator says, “We, like Peel, just want to see people loving the music we like while exposing people to new sounds.”

Friday (12th) is a puree of the Forest’s best. Forest regularly provides free workshops to the community so from 4pm we are offering a relentless sampler. There will be a bevvey of craft workshops: mask making, badge making, eco-bag construction, free massage and whatever else can fit into the family friendly cafe.

This will glide into the evening’s entertainment, beginning at 8pm with astounding acoustic pop-punk from our favorite Billy Liar who has toured with punk legends Oi-Polloi. From there we’ll be riding The Black Diamond Express: a rollicking, swing alt. country combo with impeccable stage flair, followed by the unstoppable Asazi Space Funk Explosion -a mixture of African rhythms, ska and electric folk that is guaranteed to shake booty. We’ll also have free dramatic performances, a program of accoustic Anti-Folk and plenty of mysterious and Julianna surprises.

Saturday (13th), from 2pm, we’re throwing a Rumble in the Jumble Sale where you’ll be able to find amazing bargains and buy other people’s junk! During this time, internationally renowned artist, Mike Bowdidge, will be putting together a site specific art piece with all the furniture and Danny Mullins and Free Loadin’ Frank will be performing acoustic randomomitry all the while.

In the evening we’ve got the launch of Forest Record’s new 10 inch featuring John Crave (via Satellite in New York), The Hemulen (via satellite in Berlin), Kyon and Dyems, and The Pendulums as well as the bring-down-the-house klezmer party-jams of Black Cat. In between sets there will be a “Sex Slave Auction” so bring some disposable cash. Upstairs, in The Hall, from 9pm will be a patented freak out featuring Silk, Pandacetamol, short art films, and many shocking and inflatable treats.

Sunday features the return of the World Famous “Open Mike and Terry’s Dirty Caberet”: a open mike style cabaret of infinite proportions featuring a pseudo-scatological performance art piece entitled “Let Them Be Cake.” There will be nudity, singing and songwriting, black lights and bubbles. Meanwhile upstairs the joy of your 1980s birthday party is recreated with a swinging, sliding, spraining, thudding into the walls Roller Disco. International DJ Lo-Fi Hi-Fi will be helping the boys and girls twirl with magical musical mash-ups the whole night. While the Forest will be able to supply a well-lubed floor and a few skates, punters are encouraged to bring their own.

“We’ve done this a few times,” gushes Jane Flett, Forest Secretary General, “We’ve thrown amazing parties, gotten drunk, and ridden the Festival beast, but we have never attempted something like this. Four sustained days of complete carnage. For this weekend the party will definitely be at the Forest.”



-Take a galaxy of mashed pop-indie-folk-jazz-ska-punk; add face-painting, mask-making, free badges, jumble sales, sex slaves, massage, Dadaist party games; toss in liberal amounts of ball crunching toe-tapping live music, throw in a roller disco and puree for four days of Par-tay.

Thurs, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Oct 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th. All day. Till 3am.

laser quest style stuff:

It looks like the laser quest stuff comes in around at approx £15 per set (they need to be bought in sets of 2 coming in at between £23 and £35 per set). Delivery charges need to be taken in to consideration too.

I found one that is cheaper at £20 (the first on the list below), but there is limited stock and this does not include delivery. Although, as we can source the same model through other stores we could make up the numbers at a slightly higher cost per item. Some of the other sites offer free delivery so I guess this evens it out a little.

http://www.otherlandtoys.co.uk/laser-ta ... anguage=en

http://www.toysgamesgifts.co.uk/laser-f ... -i612.html

Anyways - it's all down to how strongly we feel about getting the laser quest going.

they call us winsome, but we're just hopeless
