Latest news from Grace Eyre
Hello! The Purple Club Night last Friday was a great success – 65 people came along, not bad for a cold, dark night in January! Here are some pictures and films from the club night.
The next Purple Club House is on Friday the 16th of February. It will be a Love Night and there will be a live performance by our very special headliner Daniel Wakeford, who starred on TV in The Undateables. Daniel sang the UK entry to the European Song Festival in 2015.
Here is a link to his performance. At the Purple Club House Daniel will be performing to backing tracks – we don’t quite have room for this orchestra at Grace Eyre! We know he will be great, though.
If you have a Facebook page and would like to join or share the event, please feel free to do so here.
Any questions, etc. please contact Mark Richardson at mrichardson@grace-eyre.org or on 07921 095 492.

No Bedtimes – A DJ’s perspective of clubbers being told what time to leave

Here at Heartventure we would like to promote a campaign that we are passionate about.
We want to get support workers to think about what they're doing by not enabling the people they support to decide when to leave a night out.
The campaign was prompted by DJ Chris Love. Here he is in a short video in action as a DJ and also talking more about the issue.
To read more, go to this article on the “STAY UP LATE” website.
You can also follow the #NoBedTimes hashtag on Twitter.
Pride 2017 was amazing! We hired a open top bus which was really fun. We shared the bus with another organisation, Grace Eyre, which meant we had a bus full of happy people!
