We host and co-host events and sometimes hand over our space for full-on takeovers. Our studio is pretty flexible and has a range of more or less functional equipment, furniture and gee gaws available for use and this is reflected in our irregular programme of events. We programme music, theatre and performance, comedy and other art-related stuff like artist talks and seminars. We’re picky though and, while we’re always up for suggested events and rock-ups, we don’t always say yes to everything, work has to be quality and have a fit with our commitment to equality, social justice and joy.

We have ‘regulars’ like eclectic music experience Club Integral West Midlands Branch and spoken word/music mashup Funkenteleky

We also have more one-off or unusual events, recently this has included Women Who Wank, Joanne Tremarco’s fantastic one-woman impro show as part of Birmingham Comedy Festival, and theatre shows like ‘My Beating Heart’.
