Press Release// from Cafe INDIEpendent

Press Release from Cafe INDIEpendent:

As you may have seen from the notices displayed or the advert in the local media, we have applied for a Premises Licence, which will enable us to sell beer, cider or a nice glass of wine for you to enjoy with your sandwich or with nibbles after work or as part of one of our events.

However on occasions we want to offer a later evening event because, for instance, we’ve got an amazing northern soul/funk DJ on, or to showcase a local up and coming young (or not so young) band. This is because Cafe INDIEpendent is in part about enhancing the cultural and artistic offer for Scunthorpe. We’re proud to do things differently and of the events we’ve put on so far and all the ones we have planned for the future. Above all we work very hard to ensure that the events we put on are safe, do not encourage reckless or bad behaviour and contribute positively to the town.

Overall we want our venue to be very different from the pubs and clubs and not in competition. A place where people come because it feels welcoming, safe and different to anything else available. Like Cheers.

However, we need to advise our customers that to date we do not have a license as an objection has been made to our application and that this must go to a hearing scheduled for the 26th November. This may affect some of our immediately planned events.

We cannot and will not be selling alcohol, unless we have a Temporary Event Notice and the time frame did not allow for this for last weekend and this one.

The past few events have operated on Bring Your Own Bottle meaning that you can purchase alcohol at your convenience and bring it into the cafe to be enjoyed for a small corkage fee. The corkage fees are 50p per bottle or can of beer, £2 for a bottle of wine. Unfortunately spirits cannot be brought in. If you wish to take advantage of this, please present your alcohol to staff on arrival at the cafe. We will keep it chilled for you and charge you at the point of opening. What you don’t drink will be returned to you! Of course soft drinks, tea, hot chocolate and coffee are always readily available at the cafe. Byob will only apply when we advertise events as such.

So, basically you can still have a drink and attend our events, and in actual fact, it’s going to work out cheaper for you too! At Cafe INDIEpendent we look on the bright side, so that’s it – more pennies in your pocket and still quality events. And coming soon, fingers crossed – a fully functioning bar for events.

However selling alcohol will never be our primary purpose and we never forget what we are really about; which is our young people and our volunteers. Because they’re amazing. So many stories about so many young people who are getting better every day. Growing, like we all should be. Keeping them safe and developing them is our priority. Selling alcohol, coffees and delicious food is just a means to keep this going!!

WANTED// For The People, By The People

1Do you fancy doing us a guest review or taking some phone snaps while you are out and about at events, shows and gigs?

Obviously we cannot make every event so we need you to help us review.There is plenty going on and we just can’t make them all.

If you are already thinking of attending or you are performing at any local events, gigs or shows and would be willing to write a short or long review, it’s up to you how much you write.

Take some phone photos to go with your article via your mobile phone or compact camera. You will then have your name credited at the bottom of the article and be sent the stats in which your article reaches if you wish.

People wanting to write more often, think of this as a trial before we can add you to the website as a writer.

It’s all for fun and your opinion on the things going on. There is no pressure and no tight deadlines. But obviously don’t leave it too long after the event otherwise you may forget it.
