Live Performance Night in Whitechapel

Fri Oct 24, 19.30 - 22.00

Join us for an evening of creativity and live performance. The evening will be open to all, and there will be opportunities for anyone to do a performance piece. It could be song, a bit of writing (yours or a famous piece that you love) a dance, mime or whatever. As long as it's something you love, don't worry about what it is. It'll be a really friendly environment to do something a little scary. Why not try it?

If you don't feel you have anything you want to share, just come along for a great time anyway.
