UK Connections Anyone?

I have a gig in Oxfordshire, England the weekend of September 23-25, 2005. I will most likely be in the UK for up to two weeks and am currently looking for other venues where I can perform or present performace pieces and talks. I sent e-mails to all the MCC gay church groups in England. What I need to find are contacts at universities. If you have any or any other venue suggestions, please email me.

    -.-‘ Sorry, may live here but I my connections don’t even reach as far as my neighbours. I’ve been meaning to check out the university, but not got around to it yet. They have an LGBT soc: The prez is called Chris, but I don’t really know him. Their Site.

    Most unis will have an LGBT society, I think. Bangor had one, and Bangor’s pretty small. Want me to do a hunt-around?

    The only other venue in Brizzle I can think of is the Bristol Folk House. They’re technically an adult education centre, but they do a lot of music, protest singers, performed poetry, open mic type stuff. They’re just generally cool people, really. They might be interested *shrug*. Their website’s a bit minimal I’m afraid; the venue itself is small but friendly.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help, I’ve only lived here… almost a year? A year already? Blimey!

    I have connections, but they are through my ex-husband, and although my relationship with him and his family are still good, they are all in London and Bath. And the Bath people are way conservative. I don’t even want to know what their thoughts are on homosexuality. Early on, I was taught that I’d like them a lot less if I brought up politics. Shame, really.

    Anyway, nothing to add here, but have a wonderful time.

    Check and see if there are any Quakers that you could stay with. I might be able to find out about it when I’m there this month, though Bradford-on-Avon is quite far from Oxfordshire, there might be people that will know things like that. I can’t guarantee anything though.

    Check out Time Out London for venues. Perhaps that’s a good place to start. If you do make through London (and I’m still here), drop me a line at quaker_lilies[at]yahoo[dot]com. Good luck!
