Why we ask identity questions?
We want to make our events as inclusive as possible and we often get questions from people who for whatever reason say ‘I really want to come but I am nervous, will I be the odd one out?’ Whilst we will always strive to do our best to make everyone feel welcome, it is useful to know a little more about who our audience is for each event so we can be honest in our responses to any queries. It also helps us tailor events for the people attending and identify who we aren’t currently reaching with our work.
Tickets are non refundable and none transferable
ACCESSIBILITY INFO: Wilson’s Den is accessible by stairs or lift - wheelchair accessible. We will be playing loud music and operate with low coloured lighting.
ALL AGES (18+), ALL GENDERS, ALL RACES, ALL CLASSES, ALL SEXUALITIES, ALL LOVE <3
To be super clear: We are trans, non binary positive and inclusive as well as everyone from across the LGBTQI+ spectrum and will have gender neutral toilets all night. But don’t worry fellas, straight bois are more than welcome too!
GOOD VIBES ONLY SO PLAY NICE <3
Please let us know if you plan on attending and have any anxieties, or anything we might be able to do to help make your experience the best it can be! We are super proud that our events and club nights are so welcoming that there are always people who come on their own :)
See you on the dance floor xxxx
