BIMM Institute returns to The Great Escape 2017 with two days of live music, A BIMM Lounge, serving brunch for artists and delegates and the ‘BIMM Social’, a drinks event which will follow the BIMM Presents Showcase at The Hope and Ruin.

On Thursday and Friday, start your day by heading to the BIMM Lounge at Jubilee Square for brunch. All artists performing at the festival, BIMM volunteers and delegates are welcome for bucks fizz and an opportunity to plan your day of live music.

This is followed on Thursday 18th by BIMM Presents, an official showcase of music selected from across the BIMM Group at the Hope and Ruin (12pm – 4pm). Stay with us for the BIMM Social from 4pm, also at the Hope and Ruin. The live music continues with an ‘Alternative Escape’ gig on Saturday 20th May at The Hub.
