Everybody loves music? I think we wouldn’t be wrong in saying that a lot of you reading this love a good party? I mean... come on, don’t we all!?! That’s why it’s nice that the guys and girls at Party For The People have found a way for us to give something back while simultaneously “having it large”. A charitable and ethical ticket selling website that donates booking fee profits to charities.
Sounds like a great idea right? That’s what we thought at Don’t Panic. Having birthed in Sheffield starting out bucket raising and selling sweets on the dance floor, the idea quickly expanded into a fully fledged ticketing agency which donates booking fee profits to charity. Having now expanded into Manchester, Bristol & London, they’re spreading the goodness across the UK, and what better way to raise money for charity than through music.
They also throw their own parties with the profits donated to various good causes and have gained backing from some top artists such as Prosumer, Daniel Avery, PBR Streetgang, Bondax and more. Last year 'Awards for All' funding from the BIG National Lottery program allowed PFTP to begin a project - The Night Kitchen. Redeveloping the location of the former nightclub Dirty Little Secret alongside CADS (Creative Arts Development Space), another Sheffield based non-profit, they turned the space into a creative hub for the city and a location for some of the best parties in town inspired by Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ leading them to his other work ‘In The Night Kitchen’ giving them the name and decor style within the venue. The space was also home to a 12 month programme of workshops with the aim of providing young people of socially excluded backgrounds the opportunity to gain experience in artistic pursuits, including creative set design, event production and digital arts.
Party For The People are always looking for enthusiastic and like-minded people to support their cause. If this sounds up your street then find out more on their website here.
