Share Invitation from Pink Lane Jazz Co-operative

We are inviting music lovers throughout the UK to join us in a unique venture – a co-operatively owned live music and jazz education venue.
We are issuing shares to raise money to buy The Globe, a pub and music venue on the west edge of Newcastle city centre.We aim to establish The Globe as the place to go to hear live jazz and other music that is outside the mainstream.  It will be a place where musicians learn, share and develop their skills – a hub for jazz education.  It will be the first music venue to be owned by a co-operative committed to jazz.
We’ve already got promises of nearly half the money we need from two ethical funds.  Now we need to raise £125,500 from individual investors – maybe people like you.
You may invest any sum between £200 and £20,000.  You will become a member of the co-op and can become actively involved in this exciting project if you want to be.  Membership is open to any person (age 16 or over) or organisation that supports the objectives of the co-operative.
You can apply here for shares online or by post using the form on the last page of the share offer document.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
