Connections Festival Online
23 - 24 May 2020
The Loving Men Connections Festival, an extravaganza exploring intimacy and connection for gay, bi and queer men, has moved online. (It was originally due to take place at the Clapham Omnibus Theatre in south London.)
The Connections Festival Online will bring together a programme of stimulating workshops, talks and discussions, as well as virtual tea breaks and hangout time.
We'll use all our creativity to bring you informative, experiential, and inspiring workshops – that help you develop connections with yourself, with others and with the developing Loving Men community.
We will need some time to craft the programme as not everything intended for the Clapham festival will translate to an online forum.
And we’ll also include workshops that weren't originally scheduled but which the new format enables us to include - with facilitators from overseas for example and on topics that really suit an online platform. If you have ideas or people you'd like to propose, do let us know!
Please bear with us as we put together an exciting and intimate schedule for the event.
Passes are available for the whole Festival or for one day. We also have concessionary passes for people on low incomes and a ‘pay what you can’ pass for people in financial hardship.
- 2-day standard pass: £95.00
- 1-day standard pass: £55.00
- Low-income 2-day pass: £45.00
- "Pay-What-You-Can" pass: as agreed
