The organisers have many events on from virtual galleries, short films and talks.

Visit their website to find out more and please know that all are welcome here at the SURC.

  • United Queerdom: an outrageous, provocative, heartfelt and funny history of the Gay Liberation Front, presented by the book’s author Dan Glass with Live Q & A

  • The Archivettes -: film screening: It’s often said that one can’t know where they’re going if they don’t know from where they came. The Archivettes tells the story of a group of women who fought, and continue to fight, to document lesbian history

  • March for Dignity - film screening: a compelling film about the struggle to hold a Pride in Georgia (former soviet republic)

  • In Conversation with Mark Hignett: Mark brings us up to date on the story of the Soldiers in Love – letters in the keeping of Oswestry Town Museum

  • Sophia Dubochet - performance piece: Peter Roscoe’s drama explores a very unusual and expensive choice of partner for the 2nd Baron Berwick of Attingham, Shropshire

  • Voices of Eswatini – film screening and Q & A: Same sex conduct is illegal in over 70 countries, almost half of them in Africa. The Kingdom of Eswatini, in Southern Africa, is one of them. This film brings their voices into the public sphere

  • Who was Suleika Aldini? – Presentation: an untold story which documents both the unending struggles of a transgender person in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, but also the joys it held for her
