Dman & Friends Present: Sunshine & Smiles – An Inclusive and Safe Space Celebration of Leeds Night Life
13 October, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 11:00 pm
We are proud to be hosting another ‘Dman and Friends’ extravaganza at Hyde Park Book Club. This will be another safe space and family friendly event in celebration of the Leeds night life as well as being a fundraiser for Sunshine and Smiles – Leeds Down Syndrome Network.
Sunshine and Smiles is a Leeds based network supporting people with Down Syndrome, fulfils a vital role in the community by offering the only specific support network across Leeds for children & young people who have Down syndrome, and their families. If you want to get involved and volunteer please contact the charity directly or one of the hosts and we will be more than happy to put you in contact.
DJ’s will be playing in both the upstairs and downstairs area and will be teamed with interactive video displays, creative workshops and hopefully some interactive art work.
This will be a family event from 4pm till 11pm with calm lighting, visuals and lowered volume levels so that everyone can enjoy themselves. There will also be wheelchair access from the back of the venue.
As part of our safe space & policy there will also be volunteers from start to finish in brightly coloured vests to help moderate and ensure everyone enjoys their night to the fullest extent. There will also be very friendly and experienced security onsite alongside event organisers on hand to help deal with any issues that arise.
There will also be for part of the night representatives from the charity around and information and leaflets distributed on them. These volunteers will also be periodically carrying donation buckets with a suggested £4 donation from 11pm onward and pay as you feel before this point.
From 10pm onward the night will increase slowly in volume and tempo the visuals still staying at a calm level. This change will mainly be felt in the downstairs room with the upstairs room keeping a calm and atmospheric vibe to maintain what we hope will be the accessible nature of the event.
DJs will be spread across 2 rooms – the upstairs room will have music playing from 4pm and the downstairs room will start at 10pm and finish late.
