Why should charity begin at home when it can quite happily begin in a pub full of creative folk?

This Saturday's inaugural Fleeting Festival will be raising money for UK Disaster Relief in a strange and interesting ways. How many other charity events offer free gin and tonics to the first 200 people who roll up? We bet Bob Geldof is kicking himself.

The hub of the event is a gig featuring the likes of Bristol's Nick Cavesque Bert Miller And The Animal Folk, singer-songwriter Rosie Hopkins, trip-hip-hopper Sensei C and the Interpol-like Vekta Sigma interspersed with poetry and comedy.

Attendees in touch with their inner Delia are encouraged to bring along and share their cakes while creative souls can take their instruments - be it a camera or a guitar - and join in the fun. The more laidback can take in Craig Keenan's interactive artworks, pose for Emma Hopkins as she paints her postcards or get a new henna tattoo from Diabolik Angel.

Entry is £3 on the door and the G&Ts are sponsored by the locally produced SW4 Gin.
