Bildurn Paves the Way to Support Framework

Award-winning local urban developer Bildurn is supporting an innovative initiative to raise money to fund Framework's services supporting Nottingham’s rough sleepers.

Bildurn is sponsoring a one-day charity festival called Beat the Streets taking place on Sunday 28 January 2018.  The brainchild of dhpfamily, Beat the Streets is an all-day music festival fundraiser in aid of the homeless – held at venues across Nottingham - to raise vital funds to support homeless people in need.

Director at Bildurn Sean Akins said; “As a business that’s passionate about Nottingham we’re very pleased to be supporting our sister company, dhpfamily, as it hosts Beat the Streets. Homelessness is an issue that troubles many of us as individuals and businesses and this event is intended to both raise-awareness and much needed funds for Framework’s Street Outreach Team.” 

A Nottinghamshire charity, Framework is dedicated to bettering the lives of homeless people. Since it started in 2001, it has become one of the largest organisations of its type in the country, helping more than 11,000 people each year to overcome crisis and improve their lives.

The money raised from Beat the Streets will go directly towards improving the effectiveness of Framework’s Street Outreach Team. This includes putting qualified social workers in place to start assessments on the streets, towards emergency accommodation to protect people in below zero conditions and towards resettlement workers who enable smooth transitions from the street to a tenancy.

Bildurn is well known for developments such as the iconic Lace Market Square, The Pod, one of the most eye-catching buildings in Nottingham city centre.  Its current scheme is an ambitious 50,000 sq ft grade A office development – 11 Station Street.                                                                            

The full line up for Beat The Streets will feature more than 80 acts playing more than 10 stages in venues across the city centre including Rock City, Rock City Basement, Black Cherry Lounge, Rescue Rooms, Red Room, Rescue Rooms Bar, Rough Trade, Stealth rooms 1 & 2, The Bodega and The Bodega Bar.

Beat The Streets is being delivered by dhpfamily in collaboration with local organisations and music groups including I’m Not from London; Farmyard Records; Hockley Hustle and Rough Trade.

Tickets are on sale from alt.tickets (www.alttickets.com) and Gigantic (www.gigantic.com) at a recommended price of £10 (minimum donation £5) with the option to donate more. One ticket will allow access for 14+ to all participating venues.
