SCHEDULE

1:15 – 2:15 Yoga by Reiki Moon
Start the afternoon with an hour of beautiful physical, mental, and spiritual exercises to transform your body and mind.

2:15 – 2:30 Poetry by Jake Ord
Very powerful use of aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of the English language to highlight some severe topics and thoughts in our society.

2:30 – 3:00 Music by Aislinn Peters & Rhiannon Lord
Kick-ass refreshing music by Aisha and Rhi from the all female band Aisha and the Astronauts are coming to BLOW. YOU. AWAY! Why don’t you give them a listen? https://soundcloud.com/aishaandtheastronauts/rocket-ship-aisha-and-the-astronauts

3:00 – 3:30 Music by Emy Robbins
The brilliance of Emy’s music is a clever mix of subtle voice and seriously raging lyrics that you wouldn’t want to mess with. A performance that you wouldn’t want to risk missing.

3:30 – 4:00 Music by Georgia Paterson
Self pronounced lady-lovin acoustic singer/songwriterr, the refreshing sounds of Georgia Paterson was recently featured as ‘Welsh Artist of the Week’ on BBC Radio Wales. Her debut single was produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers) with Catatonia’s Aled Richards on drums.

Session organised by the wonderful Rufus where you can come and meet people of different genders, sexuality, backgrounds, and life paths.

5:00 – 5:20 Belly dancing by Dancing Queer
What’s that? Belly dancers should have long hair and shave their legs and underarms? Well, not this one! The pierced and tattooed queer dancer will give you a very oriental performance with a twist.

5:20 – finish Drum Circle
To finish off, join us in a large drum circle to play some banging tunes till we drop! Don’t let the name fool you, all musical instruments are happily welcome.

Face painting by Suzy Youngman
Want to be a cat or a butterfly for the day? Don’t worry, Suzy’s here for the rescue! Whatever you fancy, Suzy’s got it covered.

Food by Food Not Bombs Cardiff / Bwyd Nid Bomiau Caerdydd
Food Not Bombs shares free vegan and vegetarian meals with the hungry in over 1,000 cities around the world every week to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment. With over a billion people going hungry each day how can we spend billions on war?

Henna by Shroukie
The art of temporary tattooing based on dyes developed by the Henna plant will leave your skin stained with delicate designs that may last up to two weeks.
