screencity barefoot walkThe guys at ScreenCity are a great bunch, dedicated to showcasing the best that Nottingham has to offer – as we’ve mentioned before in our blog. The event was sponsored by Magic Box Wifi. The venue for this meeting was inspiring. Hopkinson was such a cool, fun eclectic place – characteristics shared by many of the people gathered there. We took a quick few photos of the floor we were on just before the venue closed, but there were another three floors of this stuff that we just have to go back and see asap!

We met some really great people there too who were very interested in The Barefoot Walk and how they could help. Stay tuned for possible…

The Freefall Nottingham Barefoot Walk

The FreeFall!

The FreeFall are, in their own words, a band who “love playing to people who want to let go and have a good time”.  A catchy, indie, pop foursome from Lincoln & Nottinghamshire who love to belt out anthemic tunes – we are delighted to have them open The Barefoot Walk – especially after seeing them perform LIVE at The Americana Festival.

X-Files Mulder & Scully Shoe Aid

FHM‘s 1996 Sexiest Woman in the World, Gillian Anderson, donated a pair of signed black flip-flops to Shoe-Aid to raise money and awareness of those in the world who do not have shoes of their own.
