WE BUMS take a break for the rest of 2017

‘Cesca and Geoffrey advised WE BUMS regulars at the October WE BUMS that they’d be taking a beak for the rest of 2017. The decision was made after HOPE St Café booked another event on our second Friday. The Café is renovating through December.

There will be no WE BUMS in January as it is New Years Day, so we will be well into 2018 before BUMS have another jam at West End.

Thank you to ‘Cesca, Geoff and their crew for their enthusiasm and energy in running WE BUMS. Coming up with fresh themes and songs every month makes WE BUMS a truly unique experience in our jam agenda.

Stay tuned about plans for next year!
