Novacrow at Stand By My- Charity Horror Festival

Sanctuary, Liverpool

Novacrow are happy to be the final band on at Stand By Me, Liverpool.

Liverpool Horror Club & Totally Tankered are coming together with Sanctuary Bar to you bring you “STAND BY ME”

STAND BY ME is a mini-fest happening on Saturday 29th September!

We’ll be bringing the alternative community and the horror crowd together for a big social party! Expect traders, short films, weird trailers, spooky stories, punk poetry, quizzes, prizes, comedy, and performers galore: burlesque, bands, DJs & metal karaoke! \m/,

This will be a fundraising event to showcase and support local charities close to our hearts. The first of these is Chasing The Stigma who work to normalise mental heath and have developed a fantastic resource called the Hub of Hope which is a database of organisations offering mental health support & advice []

STAND BY ME is a FREE event – all are welcome. If you wish to support our causes, we would be grateful for a suggested donation of £3 upon entry. We’ll also have raffle tickets on sale for a selection of boss prizes donated by local traders & businesses!

Hang out with friends and meet other weirdos as you enjoy the brilliant range of cask ales, real cider, craft beer on tap and over 50 Bottled Beers. If you prefer your liquor, then rest assured Sanctuary have more spirits than Derek Acorah can handle!

We’ll have horrific traders in the basement – with a fab range of horror merch: t-shirts, posters, badges, pins, comics, zines, books, jewellery, props, memorabilia and more.
