Important Flag Day info


It’s that time of year again and as usual, we’re going to take a few moments to remind you that many of the staff at Café Indiependent are volunteers working towards making their own lives better.

The Café will have a number of new faces that will be helping your night to run smoothly. They are training towards an NVQ for a six-month period and with this in mind we ask that you show a little patience and kindness again.

As usual, there are two tear offs on your ticket. You will need both. The stamped tear off will need to be handed over for your free pint and the second will be for your hot dog. Please note that this year, you can redeem your free pint on either of the ales, but not the Café’s regular stock.

There will be two bars running, so if there’s a queue for the ales feel free to sample some of the canned and bottled ales, craft beers and lagers in the downstairs bar.

Your ales for the evening are:

flag day beers
flag day beers

Axholme Best (Iron Brew Bitter)
Axholme Clearwater (Pale Ale)
A selection of ciders to be announced

The Cafe also have Brooklyn Lager, San Miguel and Shed Head American Pale Ale on draught as well as a selection of bottled and canned beers, craft ales and lagers.

Timetable for the evening:


There are still a few tickets available

Tickets can be collected prior to the Bradford City game from Trust Corner, priced £5. We are also allowing walk ins on the night but we cannot guarantee food. Walk ins will be allowed until 10.30pm.

You can still preorder a ticket for collection by emailing [email protected]

Raffle Prizes

We will be holding a raffle so if any fans have any suitable raffle prizes they would like to donate to the cause then we’ll be only too willing to take delivery. We’ll be at the Cafe from 9.30am on Saturday morning, or you can drop them off at Trust Corner before the game.


If you would like to display your flag, you can drop it off at the Cafe during the week or bring it along on Saturday morning from 9.30am.

Finally, a big thank you from the Iron Trust & Iron Bru

A huge thank you must go to the acts performing on the night, We Collect Pogs & Los Reciclodores for giving up their time. Thanks to David and staff at Cafe Indie and to North Lindsey College who are sending a couple of students to film the event on an official work experience placement.

Special thanks must also go to David Jenkins who has supplied the specially commissioned hot dogs and Pocklington’s Bakery who are supplying the freshly baked rolls.

Finally, thank you to everyone who has purchased a ticket. Our good cause this year is The Forge Project and our donation will allow them to help homeless people in Scunthorpe and the surrounding area, so please dig deep for the raffle and let’s raise as much money for them as possible. The Forge are passionate about reducing the impact of poverty and homelessness in Scunthorpe and surrounding areas. You can find out more about their work here.
