The Bevendean Community Pub Limited, governed by the Financial Services Act, will be issuing the £10 shares on Saturday 1st December 6.00pm at St Andrews Church.
There will also be a fundraising gig from 7.30 to 10.30pm with mulled wine and nibbles, including Langham Brewery's Hip Hop real ale.
They are hoping to raise up to £200,000 and to get as many people involved as possible.
They aim to turn The Bevendean into the first co-op pub and café on a housing estate in the UK, offering not just a place for people to go, but somewhere they can all be proud of, while offering jobs and training opportunities for local people.
With a population of 18,000 the Moulsecoomb, Bevendean and Bates estates in East Brighton have been without a pub since the ‘The Bevendean’ closed in May 2010.
The Bevy will be a community hub, introducing good freshly cooked food to serve alongside the real ales at prices people can afford. A dedicated meeting room for local societies, a community kitchen and an edible pub garden. A village hall with a difference in an area that is in desperate need of somewhere for people to meet!
Come along and tell your friends, if you can't come, you can buy shares online at www.thebevy.co.uk
