Our Public Living Room sessions in partnership with Camerados
Open every Tuesday between 9.30am-12pm and every Thursday from 12.30pm-3pm in our Common Room space. Run by volunteers this provides some time and space for people to simply enjoy a cuppa and a chat. A gateway to a UK wide network of Camerados.
Camerados is a social movement – which really just means that there are lots and lots of us (from Baltimore to Blackpool) who think being a bit more human is a good idea. The movement started in 2015 and the main thing you’ll see us doing is opening Public Living Rooms in our communities – welcoming, no-agenda places for folk to sit down with a cuppa, have a chat, and feel more human.
You can find out more about what Camerados is about on their website
Bechange also run a Camerados Public Living Room session on Fridays from 10am-12pm
