Are your events accessible?
Yes, we will always aim to be in venues that have access for wheelchairs and disabled toilets. See below for further questions about accessibility.
I’m not LGBTQIA identified. Can I come?
YES! Our events are for everyone, however you identify, we are here to ensure everyone feels welcome. We operate a safer spaces policy in recognition of the fact structural inequality exists and many LGBTQIA people are marginalised from other types of spaces, or events. We ask that you respect this and other attendees of events. Otherwise, come along!
Where do you do your events?
We operate on a pop up basis, meaning we move around depending on the type of event we’re producing. However, we can guarantee a cosy vibe, accessibility and a warm welcome. We always make sure toilets at our venues include an all – gender option.
As of Summer 2020 our events are currently online owing to the COVID-19 crisis. Find out more about our plans for live events here.
Do you offer discounted tickets?
We offer tickets on a sliding scale. We ask our community to self assess their income level against a checklist of indicators. We also offer free tickets to refugees and those seeking asylum. This scheme is supported by grant funding and generous donations through our Pay it Forward ticket scheme.
I’ve booked a ticket to an event / workshop but haven’t got an email. What should I do?
If you booked through Tickets for Good you can email Tickets for Good direct to check whether the booking went through. Please do also check the email linked with your booking. It might have gone to an old address associated with your Facebook account. Please check your spam folder too.
Can I come on my own?
Yes! We have lots of people who attend our events on their own. We hope in future to introduce specific ways for those flying solo to enjoy the events together. But generally, our crowd is friendly, and the relaxed vibes enable people to get chatting.
In these socially distant times we actively encourage you to be attending our online offer with your own household or bubble only!
Can I bring my teenager / friend who is under 18?
Sorry, no. Our events are currently for over 18’s only. Some of our workshops will be offered to other ages, but these will be clearly labeled.
How can I get pre-sale tickets?
To guarantee you get tickets for our sell out events first, sign up to our newsletter here. We also sometimes send out ticket offers to other ace shows / events in Sheffield too.
How do your online events work?
We tend to use Zoom to facilitate our online offer. To book, buy a ticket and we will send a link to the Zoom ‘session’ normally the day before the event. Our Safer Spaces policy has been adapted for online events and we ask everyone to read this in advance. We will always provide a break for any sessions over 1 hour, and if you have specific access needs, just drop us a line in advance.
Do you provide breakout space for those with sensory issues?
Our current physical venues often have lobbies or foyers / bar areas. Where possible we will always be explicit as possible as to our venues’ amenities. If you do have specific access needs, we’re very open to conversations about how the event can be made more accessible. You can contact us here
I’m deaf. How can I access the events?
With our film screenings, where possible, we will always screen with subtitles. Though on some films, this is difficult to do, within our budget and time limits. With live events, we try to find funding to provide BSL interpretation. Please ask if you have questions about specific events.
I have other access needs, will I be catered for in your workshops?
Our online workshops are designed to be as accessible as possible, with information sent to your email address in advance so you know what to expect. You can also contact us with any specific access needs and we will do our best to provide you with what you need.
When will you do in person events again?
We are constantly monitoring the situation with the pandemic and listening to the feedback we collect from our community. We are not a regularly funded organisation so we cannot take financial risks in planning for live events. Much of what we’re still grappling with is in this blog. Our online offer is still alive and thriving well into Autumn 2021, so please check out our events page to enjoy some queer culture!
Are there hot drinks / non – alcoholic options for drinks at your events?
There will always be hot drinks and good non – alcoholic drinks options at our events. Cake goes too well with tea to not offer this!
