I Heart Thursdays: Kitty's Pick N' Mix Scratch Night

29th Aug 2019

Kitty kindly requests the company of lovely locals and friendly foreigners alike. She wants to know what you’ve been up to this fine summer and will be taking tips on surviving the menopause with a smile.

Have a nosey at some new performances (find info on performers below), a good old natter and maybe even a sing along to boot!

I Heart Thursdays is a series of regular St Helens social get togethers to bring us all a little closer, it’s a chance for artist to meet audience, creatives to engage with communities. With no script and no agenda nothing is off limits, and anything could happen! Expect talks, screenings, dinners and just about everything in between! Why are our artists compelled to produce the work they do? What are the processes they harness in its creation? And what do we, the audience, really think of it all anyway?

Phoenix Plant Based Eatery is wheelchair accessible

Soft drinks, tea, coffee and cake available to buy; bring your own booze if you fancy a tipple.
