WHERE? The Garage, London

WHEN? 01.06

“Do you want to hear the best story you’ve ever heard in your life?” Andrea Gibson asks into the microphone. The audience leans forward in silent anticipation. “So I met this woman and I went home to her house with her.” They pause. “Already a great story, eh?” ​Here at DIVA, we have to agree.​ β€‹With a career in poetry spanning almost twenty years (beginning in 1999 with a break-up poem at an open mic night in Boulder, Colorado), Andrea Gibson made the move to spoken word poetry ten years ago, when they won the first Woman Of The World Poetry Slam. β€‹Now, they're in the UK on tour. Catch 'em while you can, people.

WHERE? The Book Club Shoreditch, London​

WHEN? 02.06

A brunch experience with a difference is coming to London for the first time – one that promises to do good with every Bloody Mary poured. Taking place at The Book Club, Shoreditch on the 2 June, the Bloody Big Brunch, will serve-up the classic cocktail all day long - but there’s a catch. It can only be "bought" in exchange for sanitary protection...​ Drink some booze, do some good.

WHAT? 🎭 SISTERHOOD

WHERE? The Marlborough, Brighton

WHEN? 03.06

A new play about three women aged 20, 40 and 60 exploring their gender, fertility and what feminism means for them in 2018. Described as a “fearless adventure into the dark heart of a paradigm shift”, Sisterhood sounds like a belter of a play.
