Gaggle Cave

Gaggle are a 20-strong all-female alternative choir. They'll be resident at In-Situ, the new arts and events space next to the Royal Albert pub, for three weeks (12-8pm daily and till 11pm on Sat & Sun), opening on Thursday 30th May at 6pm.

The girls have turned the space into a gallery and hangout space and will be selling artwork, clothing and music, and running a workshop programme of 'life and music skills'. Crossfields resident Sarah is part of the choir and says, "We're calling it the GAGGLE CAVE and we'll be putting on talks, performances and artists-in-residence along with selling products and holding dozens of workshops that we hope will empower and enthuse people – from  Sound Engineering for Girls and Feminist Choirs for Boys, as well as other skills from drumming to welding!  The aim is to be as affordable and accessible as possible and we hope it's going to be an exciting few weeks."

Gaggle were busy painting the sign above the shop yesterday which reads "Adventures in lifestyle, craft and noise"...and will be performing on Thursday evening at 7.30pm. To find out more go to www.gaggle.tv. Gaggle also have a Facebook page, as do inSitu.
