Harlequin’s Kiss are pleased to announce their participation in BCU Rock Society’s All Day Festival for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation at Subside bar on 27th May 2018.
Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established. It became a registered charity in 2009 (Registered Charity No. 1129689). The charity aims to provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures, and campaigns to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from alternative subcultures or Lifestyle and Dress.
Tickets will be £4 and £5 on the door, and will go on sale on 30th April.
Doors will open at 2pm and bands will begin at 4pm.
Harlequin’s Kiss will be joining a line-up of six bands announced so far.
(N.B. At the time of going to press, the line-up is still very much subject to change.)
