‘You’re Welcome’ is a day long event which will see performers, poets, writers and musicians take to the stage to promote togetherness in Portsmouth -- whilst also raising money for local refugee and asylum seeker services.

About

Over fourteen acts will be performing throughout the day, including: Majid Dhana (poet exploring refugees, addiction and mental health), Amanda Garrie (member of the Portsmouth Writer’s Hub and PhD student), and William Sutton (musician, playwright, raconteur and author of the popular Campbell Lawless book series). All acts will be announced in the lead-up to the event.

Throughout the event, attendees will have the option to create artwork/designs, forming a visual response to the event and it’s theme for audiences online. There is also open mic opportunities from 13.50hrs.

The event will take place at the Gallery on Sunday 29 April, 11.30 - 15.30hrs. Booking is available via Eventbrite (click here) or is payable on the door.

All profits from the £3.00 ticket will be donated to the drop-in at Portsmouth’s British Red Cross.

Our cafe partners, artisan bakery Bread Addiction will also be open, serving drinks, pastries and light lunches.

‘You’re Welcome’ has been organised by writer Emily Priest, in collaboration with Aspex.
