4 People not profit start 2013 with a very special event as part of there Move your money week. After the ‘Open your mind’ film night with ‘The Four Horseman’ on the 21January the following day present an event supporting the Move your money campaign. The event will be on the 22nd of January in the main room of the Marine in Saltburn starting at 8.00pm till late. The event is free entry as ever. .

The move your money campaign sets out with the simple premise that the banks have failed us and something needs to change. The banks won’t change of their own accord and politicians and regulators are too narrowly focused on maintaining the status quo, so we must be the agents of change. It is simple: make a positive decision about where to put your money.

Banks rely on the deposits of ordinary savers. So when you choose where you keep your money, you are choosing between supporting business as usual or taking a simple but powerful step towards a better banking system and a better future. By moving your money you can directly support an ethical and socially useful bank, and send a message about the sort of society and economy you want to see. And one you’d rather not.

The campaign follows a highly successful movement in the US which has led to over 10 million people moving their money into local financial institutions – in a single day over 40,000 people moved their accounts. It’s not the first consumer boycott in the UK either. In the 1980s a student led campaign successfully resulted in Barclays pulling out of apartheid South Africa.

At this event we have a stellar line up of fantastic talent. Headlining we have Serinette a stunning group led by the beautiful vocal talents of Louise Radford, who combine indie pop sensibilities to create truly organic original music. In support will Saltburn Didgeridoo legend Kev Howard bringing some serious didgeridoo beat driven madness of his own stunning exceptional standard. Combined with this will be our resident DJ Marc Fox with his usual mix of funk, soul, breaks and beats and joining him behind the decks will be Brother bear after his début set at the last event ripping up the dance floor with his unique mix of electro swing. And there will be VJ wizardry from Da Pigg. This will be a storming event and one not to be missed. So tell all your friends and family and come down and be part of a movement to Move your money away from the greedy banks which have caused the financial crisis we are all still dealing with now! And most of all bring your dancing shoes and get ready to boogie at Saltburn’s first big party of 2013!!
