Join us for the Big Sing – celebrating 25 years of Beeston Festival

Calling all Beeston Festival Goers!

To celebrate the 25th year of the festival, and the togetherness that it represents, there will be a BIG SING at the Festival this year.

What’s a Big Sing, you ask?

It’s where everyone can come together with a common aim; to sing a well-known song!

The festival has been working with local primary schools and community groups to teach the song, but we’d like you to join in with them!

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sung, you’re a popstar in front of your bedroom mirror, or you sing regularly in a choir.

Join us at 2:50pm near the main stage to be a part of something special!

We’re going to sing Lean On Me by Bill Withers. Here are the words:

LEAN ON ME

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won’t let show

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem
that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
I’ll share your load

If you just call me

Call me, call me
Call me, call me
