Update for 22 August and plans!

It is getting chillier and meeting up outside is becoming harder as the weather changes. We are committed to keeping our community safe, we also recognise the importance of creative and social events for wellbeing.

Our space is being rearranged to facilitate 2m social distancing and our crew are putting in place all the safety guidance possible to give our community a space to reconnect without endangering themselves or others.

Please imagine the words ‘socially distanced’ between all the activities we mention as we don’t want to type it again and again 🙂 we are working on having a 2m distance between social bubbles for our activities in Autumn. We are also installing ventilation, have hand sanitiser stations and are a mask-positive space. Timings are also being adjusted to prevent people spending too much time in the same space as one another.

Here is what’s happening in September:

Our community café will be opening on Saturday lunchtimes for prebooked lunches, our food deliveries are continuing too. Bear with us whilst we set up the systems for this!

Live performances are now allowed indoors and we are planning how best to do this, starting with spoken word events and moving onto bands in our downstairs space. We intend to keep live streaming all performances and offering by-donation tickets for those who are still staying home.

Weds 2 September
Southampton Queer Collective social, 7-9pm

Saturday 5 September two performances of Tales of Ancient Egypt with Jason Buck Storyteller


Thursday 10 September – New Forest and Southampton Red Tent talking circle

Community Café events on Saturdays will start up from Saturday 29 August and we hope to reintroduce Sunday Sessions with vegan roasts and music very soon.
