Gather round the proverbial campfire to say your piece about yourself, your identity and who you are, whether that’s words you’ve written as poetry or prose, anecdotes, feelings, current affairs, science, strange synchronicities or even alien sightings. We welcome everyone and encourage a warm atmosphere of fun, laughter, empathy and friendship. We want to provide a place where people know they will be listened to, and supported, as we all make our cosmic journeys round the big fireball in space.
Contact us to book your place. A Zoom link will be sent out one hour before the event.
30th January, 7pm
Join us for the first radical reading group of 2021, where we will be looking at Aldous Huxley's classic dystopian novel Brave New World. This year's reading group will alternate with monthly online film nights. To get your free copy of the book and to join the discussion, contact us. A Zoom link will be sent out one hour before the group.
