DINA Digest: A busy week ahead! 09/05-14/05
We’ve got quite a bit to get through in this week’s round-up as there’s absolutely shedloads of stuff cracking off down here, from comedy, film, theatre, poetry, music… just the whole shebang you’d associate with our place.
Kicking off tonight and we welcome Apocalypse Of The Mind, a theatre show that takes audiences on an enthralling journey through myths and legends, and one man’s dramatic struggle to stay alive.
Created with stories from the people of Sheffield, help from mental health professionals, and advice from internationally-renowned theatre company Third Angel, Apocalypse of the Mind debuts in Mental Health Awareness Week. This is running for two nights from 1930-2100, with tickets at £10 and £7 concessions. For more information visit their Facebook event page.
And seeing as it’s Tuesday, that means Creative Tuesdays of course and the return of Daft Chuffs Comedy, with their Helicopter Happiness show, despite a firm helicopter ban across the venue. As always it’s free to get in, and doors for that are at 1945.
On to Wednesday and it’s an evening of film as Reel Femme are back for their second show at DINA. The night’s theme is Love/Sex, featuring a range of shorts directed by women which will explore love and sex in all their many guises.
There is a suggested donation of £3 for those that can which goes to Sheffield charity VIDA. More info on the Facebook page.
Friday night promises to be pretty damn massive as RiteTrax present the Bole Hills Fundraiser featuring Mark Archer of Altern-8 fame and Ceephax Acid Crew. This night is an underground creative culture showcase across three rooms in aid of RiteTrax on the Bole Hills 2017, a free one day community festival held on the Bole Hills recreation ground in Crookes.
There is absolutely loads going off on this night, full details of the enormous line-up are on Facebook including ticketing information.
Moving on to Saturday and Queer Love are back with May Riot. We’ve got bands, drag kings and queens, and DJs to keep you dancing until 3am. All cash raised will go towards hosting Sheffield Pride to help them keep it free. This was a really popular event last time out, tickets are £5 in advance.
