Soteria in the Pub: Feeling safe at our gig
Our space is safe. It can be intimidating to perform songs, poems and stories in a new space and we want everyone to feel safe. To help with any nerves or stage fright, we have set a rehearsal date, should you like to meet and familiarise yourself with the space. This will take place usually a week before on the evening of Monday 26th February. Please email us at [email protected] to confirm your attendance for a rehearsal.
During the event, we will also have a quiet room upstairs and staff will be available to be with you if you are feeling overwhelmed in any way.
