The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sounds Queer is Cellar Theatre's monthly variety performance night centralising and celebrating LGBTQ+ artists of all disciplines. Join them for their eighth event: Happy Holi-gays.

Expect anything from poetry and music to comedy, drag, dancing, singing, storytelling and more – at a night that might be just the thing to lift spirits as the General Election votes are being counted.
Doors open 8pm. Open mic from 8:30pm, features from 9:15pm, and a Jingle All The Gay dance party to end.

Sounds Queer is co-produced by Talya Stitcher (Slam of the North, BBC Edinburgh Fringe Slam) and Tommi Bryson (A Princess Could Work, Standing At The Sky's Edge). Read our Meet the Locals interview with Tommi.
