Lost Weekend (May 10 -12)

Food slam meets Rockaoke: Open air crafts market. Car boot sale in cathedral and Southport Jazz festival

Published on May 9th 2013.

Lost Weekend (May 10 -12)

A turn for the worse
Camp and Furnace is the place to be tonight, with food, booze and the chance to get up with a live band and do a turn. Like karaoke, but better, or worse.

Two of C&F''s biggest nights are going head to head - Food Slam Friday vs. Rockaoke in one massive mash up.

The Food Slam will be in The Furnace with extra lashings of street food, cocktails and live DJs, while in Camp you can practice your air guitar and Jagger swagger to a LIVE rock karaoke band, complete with stadium projections. They know everything 

But if you can't make it tonight, don't worry, there's a chance to do the music bit next Thursday.

Say organisers: "The last Rockaoke event was so much fun we've decided to do it twice in May, first up on Friday 10th of May and then again on Thursday the 16th May. Then every third Thursday thereafter."

The band know everything from Purple Rain to Eye of The Tiger. How about Je ne Regrette Rien? Who knows, but by tomorrow morning you may do.

Food Slam Friday vs. Rockaoke , Camp & Furnace, Greenland Street, Liverpool 1. Friday May 10, from 7pm. Free.
