Counting down…

by unchartedworlds

Only a few days to go now before our event for International Celebrate Bisexuality Day, 23 September 2012 at the Maze in Nottingham!

Latest updates…

Music & words: The three main performers we’ve got lined up are Sue Warren (60s & 70s songs), El Dia (hip-hop & poetry) & Warren Volume (featuring the Dr Who Song). I’m looking forward to it! There might still be room for a couple more spots to be added on the night, and we promise to give nervous performers a warm welcome.

We’ll have other interesting spoken-word stuff too, including some info on bisexuality from Grant, and some crowd-sourcing of ideas for the future.

Smoking: Several people have ticked the “smoke makes me ill” option on the “fine-tuning” survey, and no-one with mobility difficulties has said they need to smoke, so we’re going with a smoke-free back courtyard. Smokers can still smoke – they just have to nip out the front entrance, i.e. the front of the Forest Tavern.

Food: As we’re starting at 4pm and they don’t do food, the Maze management has kindly given permission for us to bring in sandwiches or takeaway. We’ll have a kind of tea-break about 6pm or so, followed by a tidying-up session so as not to leave any mess.

Please buy drinks from the venue – that’s the only way they make any money from hosting us.

Newcomers’ meetup: If you’re coming to the “newcomers’ meetup” at Fade (2:30-3:50pm), the thing to look out for when you come into the café is a (newly-acquired) bi flag! Pink, purple and blue. It’ll be on or near “our” table.

Setting up: We could still do with one or two more people on the team that’s setting up at the Maze before the start – probably around 3pm. Some of it is moving chairs and tables, which I realise some people can’t do. But there’s also stuff like putting out books or information, or blu-tacking things to the walls.

Your help would be much appreciated! and it could be a good alternative to the “newcomers’ meetup” for meeting a couple of people and settling into being there. If that sounds like your cup of tea, please drop me a line.

Hashtag: For following Twitter, we’re adopting the hashtag #EMidsBi for this event and future similar things in the area. (You don’t have to be on Twitter to view this link.)
