The Queer Fringe Festival

5th June

Community Brunch: Golden Girls

Aubergine is proud to be a host venue for the Cardiff Queer Fringe Festival this summer. We'll be kicking things off this Sunday with a celebration of queerness and neurodiversity in poetry featuring some of the country's top queer and ND poets including Mollie Russel, Frankie Parris, Dee Dickens and more.

This will be a hybrid event so you can join us in person or online. If you've never performed your poetry for a live audience before this is a perfect opportunity to share it with the world in a friendly, neurodiversity-inclusive space.

£2.74-5.98 | 19:00 | Aubergine Cafe

I'm finally using my body for what I feel like it's made to do - Owain Train McGilvery

Owain Train McGilvary’s exhibition is informed by his close connection with a wrestling group for women and non-binary people, in the southside of Glasgow. Owain spent the last two years working closely with the group and has created an intimate video portrait that distils many of their conversations to explore key themes including the role of ‘villain’, gender, kinship and working class lives.
