The HomeGround 30th Birthday Party – Sunday 17th June 2012

The HomeGround 30th Birthday Party will be on Sunday 17th June 2012 from 4 pm until 10 pm at Lo-Profile, 84-86 Wardour Street, London W1F 0TQ.

In 2012 we reach 30 years since we first decided to put out a Kate Bush fanzine and produced the very first copy with scissors and paste and the office photocopier.

We’re feeling the need to celebrate, and The HomeGround 30th birthday party is going to be relaxed and fun, a chance to meet other Kate fans and hear Kate’s music played in a club. This is not a convention with organised events or acts, just a chance to have fun and socialise in a Kate themed environment.

Lo-Profile is situated in the heart of Soho just five minutes walk from Piccadilly Circus Underground Station.

We are happy to confirm that the DJs on the day will be;

Paul Burston. Best selling author, Time Out journalist, promoter of Polari, and DJ. Paul first saw Kate Bush on Saturday morning TV performing Wuthering Heights and fell about laughing. A week later he went out and bought the record and hasn’t looked back since. An author and journalist, he has met many of his musical heroes, but not Kate Bush. He’s not bitter.

Phil Marriot. Phil is the head of music at Gaydar radio and has his own evening show on the station he is also a resident at XXL and has played at many top venues such as the RVT and Area and is one of London’s most respected DJs. He is a life long Kate Fan.

Dave Cross. Yes the HomeGround editor is also a DJ and has played at many top clubs including G-A-Y, Heaven and Fire.

Tickets for the party are just £6.00 each and can be ordered via the PayPal buttons at the top and bottom of the HomeGround Page.

Once your payment has been received you will get an email confirmation from us. This will be your ticket and you need to bring it with you to gain access to the party.

See you all there!

    I wish I could go, but it is kind of far from Brazil 🙂 Maybe u could post some pictures of the party,I would like to see that.Thank you.

    Will there be like a program available for the event? You know something like one would get going to a play or some sporting events. If there was such a program available, can those of us who can’t make it, still pay that ticket price and have such a program mailed to them? You have to understand there are Kate Bush fans all around the globe who won’t be able to make this and who want to be a part of it.

    Received my e-mail ticket today. Great idea to send it out this way, posted tickets risk being lost by people like me. 🙂

    Since I live in the US, I won’t be able to be here physically. But I will be here in spirit. I wonder will it be possible to upload some highlights of the party on you tube? It would be great to see the atmosphere and hear Kate’s music!

    Just wishing you all the best for the event, dear Krys, Peter, Sean & Dave!
    Wish I could be able to come…it would have been just great to finally meet you in the real world, not just the virtual one, but I will be working on the day. Of course, I will be there with you all in spirit. Hope to see some photos and videos of the event.

    Just have a great celebration, enjoy every moment of this, be happy and…keep running up that hill!!!

    Much love.

    So sad I can’t come after all now. The husband is flying out to work in Vegas that day and I don’t really think I can bring my 6 year old son along!!! Unfortunately, baby sitters are proving elusive. Have a wonderful time and I look forward to the next time.
