Past event – Online Cookalong with Jason Atherton in aid of JDRF – live on Instagram

Join celebrity chef and BBC’s Saturday Kitchen regular guest, Jason Atherton, for JDRF’s first ever cookalong!

Take part on your own, with your household or hold a virtual cookalong party!

Jason and Irha Atherton say “every minute really does count” when recognising the symptoms of type 1 diabetes, after their daughter, Keziah (pictured), was admitted to intensive care and diagnosed with the condition at the age of 13. They hope that by coming together, we can raise awareness of type 1 to help others in a similar situation, as well as raising vital funds to support JDRF.

You can find out more information, including the ingredient list, on the JDRF event page.

Date: Friday 29th May
Time: 6:30pm

Social Isolation is a way to bring some games, laughter and friends to your living room, while raising money for amazing causes.

We’ve got a live dancing queen on hand to show you the moves to the best songs (if you don’t already know them). And if that wasn’t enough, 10% of your ticket sale will be donated to charity. So get your tickets while you can!

Find out more information at eventbrite.

Past event – “Spark: The Bedroom Edition” Spoken Word Show – live on Facebook and YouTube

Adapted from her full length spoken word show about witches, womanhood and persecution, “Spark: The Bedroom Edition” is an adapted show that is performed entirely in Sarah’s bedroom.

Her wedding has been postponed, her tour has been cancelled and it’s also her 30th birthday; things aren’t going well. Over the course of a sleepless night alone, Sarah wonders if all the fire of her 20’s has gone out. She tells stories about witches and the women who raised her, talks about mysteries and motherhood and asks is womanhood an act of burning at the stake or rising from the ashes?

You can find out more information on the Facebook event page.

Date: Sunday 7th June
Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm
