15 Jun to 28 Oct

Female-led, Speakbeat Collective are returning to the Bush with Pillowtalk Sessions: PT 5.

After two sold out events in 2021, Speakbeat are excited to bring you a curated night of spoken word, poetry and DJ-ing. It will be full of energy, truth and brilliant mixes.

Speakbeat is dedicated to giving opportunities to female identifying, trans and non-binary artists from the global majority and to reiterate that they should never be considered a ‘minority’.

More details and line-up to be announced.
