Monthly Social - One Thing That Scares Me July
Come be inspired and inspire others to take a step into the un(or barely)known at One Thing that Scares Me, our new monthly night dedicated to overcoming trepidation and turning challenges into opportunities.
On the last Thursday of every month, Guild members will speak about risks they’ve taken that have paid off (perhaps in surprising ways!) and chances they are contemplating today: maybe a move into something new, expanding on their current practice, or rethinking the path they’re on.
As well as being a lot of fun, these monthly socials support the work of our hosts, the truly lovely team at Regather. By day, Regather are committed to ethically sourcing delicious fruit and veg for the people of Sheffield. By night, they run this cosy events space (just a ten minute walk from town!) with a welcoming atmosphere and plenty of tasty beer options.
The talks will be followed by music, performances and visual art from our fearless members that will leave you ready to take on the next month.
Since this is our last social before we all go off on our summer hols, we judge it to be party time. We've got three terrific performances lined up for you:
Polly Ives (musician/ concert presenter/ educationalist) has worked with London Philharmonic Orchestra, CBeebies, Royal Opera House, Music in the Round and Richard Hawley and Vanessa Mae. She is the founder and director of Concerteenies (live music for babies, toddlers and their grown-ups).
Polly will be joined by French horn player Naomi Atherton (Manchester Camerata and Ensemble 360).
Hailing from the Outer Hebrides, welcome to the dark and dreamy world of Mother Night. Mother Night recently released their debut album, ‘A Lifetime of Uninhibited Pleasure’, described by Vents Magazine as 'a thrilling dreamy collage of hook-filled ‘Pagan Pop’ spread across 9-tracks.'
Soup Review are songwriting duo Chris Delamere and Mario D’Agostino, two friends who came together over their mutual love of recording songs in their bedrooms to write DIY pop songs which walk a fine line between silliness and sincerity, high concept and novelty, folk and anti-folk. They're the Morriseys of Morrisons (minus the shitty stuff), they're like Stars in Their Eyes on SSRI's.
