Sofie Hagen

Comedian Sofie Hagen presents a night of storytelling featuring funny and fascinating stories about love and relationships told by disabled people and those with mental health difficulties.

We’ll hear true tales of hot dates, intimacy and misunderstandings. There'll also be a chance for some audience members to tell their own relationship stories - but rest assured we aim to be anxiety-safe and won't be randomly picking on people.

The event will be filmed for the BBC website and will feature on the award-winning BBC Ouch podcast.

All tickets are free and with food and drinks available to buy from 5pm and with level-floor accessibility why not come and make a night of it with us?

Tickets will be allocated by random draw.

You can register at any time until 10pm on Wednesday 22 February.

You can apply for a maximum of two tickets.

Good luck!

Admission to this recording is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.

All information is correct at time of publication.
