| Upcoming Events


We are running some regular activities through online throughout winter 2020/21, offering a chance to process what we take forward from life in a pandemic through writing workshops, and also raising our voices in song as always! Monday evenings will be a place to be creative and stay connected throughout a potentially difficult winter. Hope you can join us, newcomers are always welcome!
