What’s on, what’s free & what you can win…..

Charities are a necessity in life. They find a cause and aim to raise money in support of that cause. There are charities for health, life, animals, children, social projects and many more justifiable and worthwhile beneficiaries.

Most people will give something to charity, most people like me probably think they would like to give more but find that they have to make a decision to support a few chosen charities and stick to that decision.

However owning a bar allows us to facilitate charitable events that broaden our horizons to issues and causes we sometimes know little of or sometimes need to be reminded of. Two weeks ago we hosted events raising money for a new mental health charity Self Medication and the next day we hosted an event that was raising money for Christies.

This week we are hosting another great all day music event which will be raising money for the National Fybromyalgia Association. The Five For Fybro event is raising money and awareness of Fybromyalgia which is a chronic condition of widespread pain and profound fatigue.

Fibromyalgia is in fact more common than rheumatoid arthritis and can even be more painful. More details on this can be found at www.fmauk.org but needless to say many people suffer from it and a small donation of £3 (the whole of the admission charge on Sunday) will make a contribution to a worthwhile cause.

In return for your door charge/donation you will be treated to some fantastic live music from local bands who are donating their time, skills and creativity for free.

This week you will see the amazing Sunset Quartet, Sophie Stock, The Tasers and Zap Zap Zap.

It all takes place on Sunday and starts at 4pm. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and evening as well, wonderful original live music in a fantastic location supporting a very worthwhile cause.

The rest of the weekend is shaping up brilliantly too.

On Thursday we have the excellent Indie Mix Tape with DJ Ben Vincent. This is a great night of brilliant new and old Indie music until 3am.

Friday sees the emerging Al Fresco Nu Disco sounds of Bert and Brighty – dance music for grownups with tunes and melodies no less.

Saturday – it’s Macca’s Sunshine (Rainshine?) Groove Thing – I think we’ll have to rename this night for the impending Autumn, but it’s still the best quality late night out in Macc on a Saturday night – no cheesy chart music or tuneless dance beats, just top quality music from funk to punk to soul to reggae to disco to indie. You get the idea its eclectic but the atmosphere is electric.

Sunday – is as previously mentioned is the Five Fro Fybro charity music thing which shouldn’t be missed.

With the exception of the charity gigs all entertainment at Ronnie’s is open to everyone with no door charges, no petty rules and a welcoming attitude. Then add into that mix great premium quality drinks along with great staff and service and you have great value for your night out at Ronnie’s.

See you soon




The heart of free entertainment in Macc!

PS don’t forget to bring your Ronnie’s Cards with you. The more you use them the more you get back in free drinks or even free bottles of spirits (ask Chris Burgess about that one!) to go along with the free entertainment!

PPS we even want to give somebody a free £20 bar tab this week. It could be you if you could just take a couple of moments by clicking on this question:
