Three summer events

The Unextinction Machine hasn’t stopped working away since it first appeared in the Hill Station in summer 2011. There are rumours it may make another appearance this summer. Keep a watch out.

In the meantime, the Machine is producing three more events to brighten up this rather drizzly summer.

1) June 20th, Telegraph pub and Telegraph Hill park/streets 
Come along to the Garlick Man summer solstice parade and open mic night. It’s part of the Festival of Transition timed to coincide with the first day of the Rio+20 summit. Meet at the Telegraph pub at 5.30. Bring picnic if weather allows. Dress up to celebrate nature. If you want to perform a song/poem in the special Telegraph open mic, contact

2) July 16th, 6.30, the McKenzie’s house 
House concert and chat about children, culture & the future. We’re hosting musician Michael Holt on a Northern European tour perforning a variety show in people’s homes and then getting you talking about how we might live differently in the future. He will play songs from a new album called Jubilation! by Michael Holt and The Kids.
Bring a dish to share. Children are welcome to join in the chat. There is only space for c.25 people in our living room so please contact us on if you want to come.

3) August 11th, Telegraph pub

Let’s Dance and make Changes…

We’re hosting a party upstairs in the Telegraph pub on the theme of ‘glamour from old things’, channelling the spirit of David Bowie making his costumes as Ziggy Stardust out of old jumpers. It happens to coincide with Bridget’s birthday but that’s not important. Dress in upcycled glam or vintage and come dancing. There will be an open mic spot (for old songs made new). If you can do some non-messy small scale upcycling at tables, or can be a DJ, we’d love to hear from you.
