Art of Compassion: An Evening of Spoken Word


Nottingham Playhouse, an accredited Theatre of Sanctuary, will once again be marking and celebrating Nottingham Refugee Week this year.  On Friday 23 June we will be holding a poetry and spoken word event showcasing work that centres on this year’s Nottingham Refugee Week theme, Compassion.  

The event is for everyone, and is free for refugees and people seeking asylum to attend.  Tickets for everyone else are charged at £5. 

This event is a fundraiser for our work with refugees, in particular the Nottingham Playhouse Conversation Café, where refugees and people seeking asylum are welcomed into our building every week for a free hot drink, a chat and to practice their English language
skills in a relaxed setting.
