March Extravaganza Application

Sunday 11 March 2018 | 1pm-2am

This application will close on 10 December

I frequently hear from women about how they wish there was a community space. International Women's Day is a great opportunity to see what that space could offer. It is a bit of a trial to see whether women will come and support; a chance to engage those women to see what they would like from such a space. It is a chance to showcase all of the talented cis and trans LBQ women in our community. So we're hiring a huge London venue, with 6 performance spaces including a ground floor bar, round performance space, ballroom, workshop room and even a theatre. The total capacity is 900 and the event will run between 12pm and 2am.

We plan to offer a chance to try out or experience the many aspects of the community we are in. Whether you are into music, performance, socialising, games, theatre - for one day it will be all under one roof. Want to be where all the women will be? Well for once that will be easy!

For one day only (hopefully more in the future!) we will get our community space.

We will be looking to get press engagement to promote as many of the artists as possible so there will be a strict timeline for releasing information and we will ask everyone to sign a contract.

As no doubt many of you will be aware, as we are hiring a bar, it is very hard to cover costs as most of the income tends to go to the bar. That said, in the ethos of everything I do; I am committed to paying all those involved, even if it is a nominal fee. This is very much a trial event. If there is any profit (after artists pay) it will be re-invested into the community.

Don't delay, apply today!

We recommend completing the form on a PC or MAC computer. The picture upload is a pop up which struggles on phones. Alternatively submit the form without the image and email the image afterwards to admin@planet-nation.com
