We host a special event as part of the LGBT+ Within and Beyond display.
Date: 19 October 2019, from 12.00pm
Join us for a day of entertainment, discussion and celebration of all things LGBT+ hosted at our Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry, affectionately known as MOLLI.
In collaboration with Bordello Theatre we invite you to a 21st century LGBT+ enlightenment salon. A salon is a social gathering under the roof of an inspiring host, a place to amuse one another and share knowledge.
This unique opportunity aims to give LGBT+ people and their allies space and place to discuss, dissect, explore and share their personal stories, objects and experiences with other like minded individuals. This is a theatrical ‘show and tell’ where being prepared to share is highly encouraged, but not compulsory.
See the fantastic Bordello Theatre in action.
MOLL-I Salon, 12.00pm - 4.00pm
During the day you'll have the opportunity to meet our Artists-in-Residence, Bordello Theatre. A Queer Theatre Collective originally from Cumbria, they have performed immersive theatre at major festivals including Glastonbury and Manchester Pride.
