Cervical Screening Awareness and Fundraising Event @ Bar Titania

cervical

We’re so pleased that Bar Titania is holding its first ever cervical screening awareness and fundraising event in aid of Stonewall on Thursday 4 December. According to our research, lesbian and bisexual women are twice as likely to have never had a cervical smear test, compared to women in general and one in five believe that they are not at risk of cervical cancer.

With special guest performances, funky music, a charity auction and raffle presented by the fantastic LoUis CYfer it’s going to be a fun night and not to be missed. Some of the fantastic items you can bid for on the night are…

• Personalised Amy Winehouse gold disk, thanks to Island Records
• 1-2-1 DJ experience with award winner DJ Lady Lola
• Dinner for two at the Blue Post
• LK Bennet bag
• Plus many more  

Fifty percent of the proceeds from the evening will be going towards the Stonewall Health Programme, which aims to improve health services for the gay community and raises awareness of the importance of lesbian and bisexual cervical smear testing.

When: Thursday 4 December 2014, 6:30pm – 2:00am
Where: Bar Titania, 75 Charing Cross Rd, London WC2H 7PY
FREE ENTRY and everyone is welcome to attend the event

Odette Gibson, Owner of Bar Titania says “If one girl gets screened then our efforts are all worthwhile. With women’s health issues being as unspoken about as it is, we don’t want women dying of embarrassment. Getting tested is quick, easy and there’s no shame in it”

The Trials of Oscar Wilde
‘The truth is rarely pure and never simple’

wilde

We’re so excited that after a successful UK wide tour, ‘The Trials of Oscar Wilde’ is transferring to Trafalgar Studios, London, from 13 October to 8 November 2014.

Most people have seen an Oscar Wilde play but very little is known about his trial for gross indecency or what Wilde said in court. This production of ‘The Trials of Oscar Wilde’ aims to appeal to those who love Wilde’s plays but also to engage with new audiences who are interested in Wilde himself. Written by John O’Connor and Wilde’s own grandson Merlin Holland, this is a play that is well informed and not to be missed.

“…this delightful and historically accurate production transports one back to the sexually discriminatory England of 1895.’ TV BOMB

A huge thank you to the European Arts Company who have helped us raise over £1,200 for Stonewall so far during the run.

Prides and Mardi Gras 

prideThe UK’s first Gay Pride march was in July 1972, with just over 700 people marching through London’s streets.

Since then, hundreds of Prides and Mardi Gras have taken place across the whole of the UK in celebration of LGB & T life in all its diversity.

We're currently updating the dates of Prides and Mardi Gras for 2015, so watch this space! If you're interested in having Stonewall at your next event please email events@stonewall.org.uk.


For more details on organising your own event to help us raise vital funds for our work call Rachel Mann, Community Fundraising Officer on 020 7593 3477 or email Rachel.Mann@Stonewall.org.uk.   


Stonewall is not responsible for the organisation of these events or for the collection of the money, but we are delighted that such efforts are being made on our behalf.
