time group description
12:00 - 12:30 Red Star Radio Red Star Radio is essentially the songwriting partnership of Chris Thorley and Guy Lawton. Influences range from post-punk to indie pop and from acoustic folk to prog rock. This inevitably gives the band a hugely diverse sound, but one which is always firmly grounded around indie guitar rock. The band operates a 'revolving door' policy with other musical collaborators and performers and this throws more flavour into an already appetising melting pot.
12:30 - 1:00 Mr Plow Mr. Plow plays acoustic Americana, sounding a little like Johnny Cash bludgeoning Evan Dando with Joey Ramone’s mic stand. He sings songs about cars, films, space monsters and life’s everyday disappointments.
He considers himself to be unnecessarily tall.
1:00 - 1:50 Roger Pugh Roger is a unique songwriter and a dynamic performer, though not without a strong sense of wit. Folk Roots described his music as having "a touch of Tabasco about it". He accompanies his strong, earthy voice with the guitar and mandola, both of which he plays in a distinct and individual way.
Being a widely travelled person, Roger's music reflects this, which although Celtic at its roots shows influence of South America, The Caribbean and the Balkans. The lyrics to his songs are very important, covering such diverse topics as relationships, social issues, the environment, fungi, Latin American Ballroom Dancers and The Ramblers Association.
1:50 - 2:20 Alice Rock Alice Rock is a solo artist/singer-songwriter. Her music can be described as upbeat "Poppy Punk with Gothic Edge". Her lyrics/songs are often humorous and witty, although 'dark' at heart if listened to carefully!! Major influences include The Cure, The B52's, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Voice of the Beehive.
2:20 - 3:00 Ogum! Ogum are a tribal rhythmic collective comprising elements of pagan, African, indigenous and rock styles, featuring drums and didges.
3:00 - 4:00 Kevin Hewick Kevin Hewick is The Winston Churchill of alternative acoustic music. He has had releases on Factory Records,Cherry Red and Sorted Records and has new material on Burning Shed. A walking anecdote machine, he performs beautiful songs with deep lyrics and has the voice to do them justice.
4:00 - 4:30 The Troubadours
The Troubadours present a variety of songs and pieces; our line-up offers piano, recorder, flute, stringed instruments and percussion. Since our first show in Februrary 2005, we have presented songs in English, French, Gallic, German, Hebrew, Punjabi and Yiddish. Today at Beltane we present a mix of traditions encompassing folk, baroque and courtly.
4:30 - 5:00 Trip Like Fritz
Performing their first acoustic set to date, TLF epitomise the classic sound of summer, mixing blues rhythm and groovy hook-and-sling funk with some experimentation as usual. Definitely not an act to be missed!
5:00 - 5:30 Brettney Brett Richardson is a singer-songwriter, band member and session musician from Wigston in Leicestershire.
As a solo performer he plays a selection of reflective and lighthearted songs on his cherished 12-string guitar; (although sometimes he plays stupid stuff too)! Influences range between David Crosby, Neil Young, The Flaming Lips and ist to Monty Python and the Shirehorses - depending on his mood.
5:30 - 6:00 The Tea Monkeys The Tea Monkeys' material is something of a unique mash up of various styles, including reggae, funk, rock and pop. Well worth staying up for!

  • Angela Rudkin and Francis Hruszka (registered spiritualist healers, Spiritualist National Union)  - Healing is administered by the simple acts such as the laying on of hands, or the direction of thoughts from a distance. Massage and manipulation are not covered under the definition of healing.  You may help the healing process by being positively minded. Your thoughts are a very potent force and this can go a long way towards aiding the healing energies by positive thought. If you adopt an enthusiastic attitude in anticipation of the desired result, the healing process will often be accelerated.
  • COMMpact   We use our gazebo for a frame for ‘Build a house of dreams’ the idea being that children colour a picture of anything they wish and we pin it to the outside of the gazebo. The aim is to have the whole gazebo covered by pictures, it should be bright and very eye catching and fit in well with the principles of the service we offer. We will have some of the tools we use on display, such as sand tray work and puppets so we can demonstrate the way in which we work.
    Community parent and child therapies (COMMpact), currently provides play therapy for children aged 3 to 13, who have emotional or behavioural problems and are based at a G.P surgery run by Dr Newley, on Evington Road. We have been working toward expanding our service, providing therapy for younger and older children and are about to offer a support and counselling service for parents.
  • The Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital takes more than 1,600 patients a year, caring for them, feeding them, nursing them and when they have recovered releasing them back to the wild. The hospital runs on a completely voluntary basis with helpers collecting injured wildlife in their own time. The animals are ensured the very best of care and looked after all hours – day or night if necessary, with veterinary attention whenever required.
  • The Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust  - We offer everyone the chance to experience some of Leicestershire and Rutland's fantastic wildlife. Activities and events are organised throughout the year, everything from orchid rambles to the British bird watching fair. We currently manage 36 nature reserves, including Rutland Water, in all
    covering over 2,600 acres. We encourage people of all ages to gain a greater
    appreciation and understanding of nature. Our junior club called 'Wildlife Watch'
    is for young people to find out more about wildlife, make friends and have fun.
  • Parks Services and Garden Tours
  • Leicester Masaya Link Group aims to foster mutual understanding and friendship between the peoples of Leicester and Masaya. As well as facilitating practical projects that promote sustainable development on the ground in Masaya, the LMLG contributes to the provision of development education and global awareness raising across all sectors of the community, by organising exchange visits, cultural activities, projects in schools, speaker meetings and other public events in Leicester. Nicaragua is one of the 25 poorest countries in the world but we have much to learn from the strength and determination of its people in their struggle to overcome poverty. The link celebrates the diversity of our respective cities and aims to ensure that the global issues which affect our sister city in Nicaragua are as important here as they are in Masaya.
  • Just Peace Leicester is a group of Jewish people based in Leicester and Loughborough who believe a just peace settlement taking equal account of the needs of all people in Israel/ Palestine must be sought. It is opposed to the unlawful occupation of land belonging to the Palestinian people and to the building of the illegal wall.
    It holds public awareness raising events and fund-raises for two organisations in Israel/ Palestine: "Neve Shalom-Wahat -al-Salaam", a joint Jewish and Arab Israeli village and school for peace; and "The Refuser Solidarity Network" which supports people and their families refusing to serve in the Israeli army. We also sell Palestinian oil and soap.

Simon's Bike Generator

sponsored by LIFE Leicester Investment Fund for the Environment.
Bike Generator Schematic

 At the start of 2004 we found a need for a green PA system, independent of power feeds. 
We can run an amplified event in any location without a mains supply, and without the drone of a generator constantly running, only the gentle whirr of bicycle wheels. For quieter events we can run the amplifiers for a while on a fully charged battery, making sure we recharge the battery afterwards.
It is a great demonstration of not only what can be done, but how much physical effort is required to power something we take for granted - i.e. loud music. We don't do any formal educational work, but are happy, at appropriate times, to discuss the system. One personal priority has been audio quality, appropriate to the application. There is little merit in a green system that sounds poor, that not only does the idea disservice but doesn't make for comfortable listening; not good for the audience or performer. It doesn't take much to get nice sound.

ADVERT for New Moon

New Moon logo Crystal Healing - in today's society

Crystals have been used throughout the ages mostly for their healing and protective powers. It is therefore no co-incidence that crystal therapy has come to the forefront of Alternative Therapies during this age of Spiritual Awakening. Their transformational energies teach is to connect with our own Divinity and re-align us to the universal energy field. Each crystal vibrates in a highly individual nature and the potential for change is limitless.

Interested? Contact Anita in the marquee for beautiful crystals, Tibetan bowels and Angel cards and 01509 829596 for talks, demonstrations and crystal days.

Prem Rawat - Words of Peace

I remind people that life itself is a gift. Within each one shines a sun so bright that it can make any darkness go away.

Pick up some free materials, listen to DVD clips, ask questions or find out about broadcasts on Sky 173.

Prem Rawat (also known as Maharaji) is an internationally renowned speaker about the possibility of knowing inner peace and contentment. He was invited to address audiences of more than 1.5 million people worldwide last year including the UN60th Anniversary celebrations, the Italian parliament and Oxford University. His message has been translated into more than 70 languages.

In 2005 the Prem Rawat foundation ( www.tprf.org ) also donated $300,00 to the UN world food programme and $100,000 to the victims of hurricane Katrina, as well as organising hunger relief efforts in Sri Lanka and free medical clinics in India.

Elan Vital has been a registered charity in the UK for 30 years and we are proud to join in the celebrations of spring and new life by promoting his unique message.
