Black Rose Events – York

SO WHO ARE WE & WHAT DO WE DO?


We are a small hard but working team of goths. Our first event was in 2013 when two of our group decided that they really wanted to attend a high Goth, elegant, masquerade ball in the UK. However, they couldn’t find the sort of event they were after so decided to start their own. From small acorns , hopefully,  come mighty oaks as we have seen our event grow over the last 6 years.

The Masquerade Ball has always been the centre piece of our weekend. Elegant, in a prestige venue, in a gorgeous city. Joined by like-minded people, open to all who love dark gothic elegance. We have added  both a concert night and a trading event to the ball over the years.

 

The other two central aims for all our events are to create safe spaces for the alternative gothic community that are open to all who feel different – and to raise funds for charity. In the first two years we raised funds for a local hospice, that does excellent work, but in the last 4 years, we decided to raise for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation as it is a charity close to all our hearts in the alternative scene.

ABOUT THE CONCERT

Our concert   will take place on Friday 31st August 2018 at the Fulford Arms between 7:30pm-11pm and features the bands:-

They Called Him Zone – Dark post-punk mixing sultry Electronics and chewed up guitars     

 

 

 

Red Sun Revival – Powerful gothic rock with haunting violin melodies 

 

 

 

 

& headlining act Bad Pollyanna – Female fronted, guitar driven hybrid gothic rock!!

 

 

 

ABOUT THE BIZARRE BAZAAR

We will once again be holding the Black Rose Bazaar in the De Grey Rooms on Saturday 1st September between 11:00am -4:00pm.  Where a number of handpicked traders will sell unique gothic and alternative handcrafted items, alongside a gothic themed café in the bar area. Tea and cake whilst shopping you know it makes sense.  

 

ABOUT THE BALL

The  Jewel  in our crown  but for now that jewel appears slightly tarnished as this year’s Ball  theme is ‘Wasteland’ … an elegant, glamorous and very decadent ball has been interrupted by a post-apocalyptic event… the ball is now only a memory of this elegant affair…. the glory of the event has faded but the party must carry on….

And finally the reason we do this, the charity for which we raise money

THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION

Sophie Lancaster died on the 24th August 2007 following a mindless and savage attack on her and her partner Robert Maltby on the 11th August 2007.  The reason for this attack merely that Sophie and Robert were dressed differently. Sophie’s mother Sylvia took the decision that a charity should be set up in her daughter’s name

The Aims of the Charity are as follows *

  • To create a lasting legacy to Sophie
  • To provide educational work groups that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people  from alternative subcultures
  • To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime  legislation extended to include people from alternative subcultures or lifestyle  or dress

 

* These aims are taken for the Sophie Lancaster foundation website

All of us at Black Rose Events  are proud to raise monies for  this admirable cause.

Stamp

Prejudice,

Hatred and

Intolerance

On The Poetry Show + Stairwell Books Presents, we air The Poetry Show S2.10 AMERICA: PART ONE,

On The Poetry Show + Stairwell Books Presents, we air The Poetry Show S2.10 AMERICA: PART ONE, which is our last show before we take a summer break. Back soon!
On Stairwell Books Presents: we meet with members of a new Two Rivers show, The FanFiction Show!

First up, on The Poetry Show:

Monday’s show is about AMERICA.

With Trumpsky just now (finally) leaving the UK, we can breathe a sigh of relief. But is he really ‘someone else’s problem’? This final Eden Agency-produced episode from last year finds the planet now even less safe than when 3 million more votes were cast for Hillary. Our guests are Alicia Fernández and Joe Williams. We plan to bring these brill poets back soon for AMERICA: PART TWO. Stay tuned.

I aim for a certain timelessness in our podcasts. Wouldn’t it be great if you are out there listening to this 10 years from now? And when is ‘now’? Doesn’t matter, right?

Well…. history cannot help but show that in 2016, Reality TV star and arrogant egomaniac Donald ‘Cheatin Donald’ Trump became President. So, that does affect my recent work. In 2017, Alan and I took a long road trip from CT to FL and we saw Confederate flags rippling in the breeze; flags painted on giant water towers; and guns worn casually by lots of people. Really strange. The America I knew as a child has changed dramatically and it started with national PTSD after 9/11.

And yet, when you drive 2500 mi, along with the Confederate flags, you see regular people just trying to go about their lives.

The Poetry Show S2.9 WAR & PEACE and Stairwell Books Presents: PJ Quinn’s Poetic Justice 

The Poetry Show S2.9 WAR & PEACE and Stairwell Books Presents: PJ Quinn’s Poetic Justice

The Poetry Show, Season Two Episode 9

At long last, we’re getting to our episodes with Alicia Fernandez and Joe Williams. And first up, we discuss War & Peace.

Don’t worry, we’re not going to discuss Tolstoy, though maybe that would be interesting! In this episode, we’re joined by Joe Williams, and Alicia Fernandez. Alicia has written about the Spanish Civil War, and how her family was involved. I have a few poems on WAR but not so many about PEACE.

America’s mental breakdown and war war war endless war began with 9 / 11. Europe has been at war since, idk. French Revolution? Crimean War? WWI? WWI? Cold War? Now, with the new Cold War?

Have we ever had peace?

After TPS, Stairwell Books Presents: PJ Quinn and DI Ambrose Book 4: Poetic Justice.

Stairwell Books have two launches coming up in the first two weeks of July: Poetic Justice, the fourth book in the DI Ambrose series penned by PJ Quinn (Pauline Kirk & Jo Summers), and the long-awaited story collection Something I Need to Tell You, by Wakefield author William Thirsk-Gaskill. The first event will be most convenient for those in York, and though William’s event is a bit farther afield for York residents, it’ll be much closer for our friends in West Yorkshire. Something for everyone!

First up: Pauline and Jo’s event at Jacob’s Well, York, this coming Thursday, July 5th. This will be the fourth DI Ambrose Mystery. This series examines British life in the late 50s and early 60s, with a few murders thrown in for good measure.

Pauline and Jo will be supported by Claire Patel-Campbell and Alan Smith, and there’ll also be acted readings from the book.

Thursday 5 July, 7.00 for 7.15 pm to 9.00 pm
Jacob’s Well, off Micklegate, York
Trinity Lane YO1 6EL

Come and see one of York’s beautiful Guild Halls and enjoy a relaxing evening. Refreshments will be available and of course copies of Poetic Justice for sale.

Finally: Let’s talk about Beyond the Vote Fest at York St John’s and Staxtonbury! You aint never gonna sleep again.
Well okay you will but not til mid-July.
