The Bleeding Obvious presents Rainbow Heart

“Life is never quite as straight as it seems…”

What happens when you tumble out of the closet and find yourself trying to work out exactly where you are on the gender and sexuality spectrum?

Rainbow Heart, the new musical show from The Bleeding Obvious endeavours to describe the experience through songs and tales of joy, grief, happiness, loss and defiance.

Featuring tracks from her debut album as well as new tunes, let The Bleeding Obvious take you on a rollercoaster rainbow ride…

With support from Helen Rhodes (The Thinking Chimp).

8:30pm at The Sumac Centre, Nottingham.

Community Circle Anniversary Party

In Nottingham we have a quiet revolution going on.

We have MakerSpaces, community focussed markets and gardens, food collectives, small shops, skills exchanges, fix-it stalls and swapshops. Alongside them we have the rise of homegrown slow food, baked bread made from organic flour from our windmill, bicycles and walking. Operating on a human scale together we are creating an earth-friendly economy and becoming the heart of healthy neighbourhood. These are direct challenges to the consumer society in its expansive earth damaging form.

NGcircle is part of this challenge. Together we demonstrate how magic can happen when we start talking, listening and trusting each other.

Sigh Night!

The election is over and nothing’s changed? Diminish your distress with some fantastic vegetarian food, followed by an evening of cocktails and chilled-out beats.
