An all-q***r lineup of artists from SWANA. Expect a night of spectacular talent with poetry, sound art, erotic performance art, drag performance & DJs. There will also be stalls with tattoo, craft, art, psychic reading & vegan Iranian food.

Hi everyone,

We have had to unfortunately postpone our film club event to next Thursday 3rd March. It will not be taking place this evening. The reason for this is that the management has shut down the Main Building, due to the student occupation of the building, where our event was supposed to take place.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and will confirm next week's details soon.

Despite this, we support the demands of the occupation. Find out more about the demands of the occupation via on instagram.
