Chalk presents RESPECT

  • Cumberland Arms Byker Buildings, James Pl St, Ouseburn, Newcastle upon Tyne NE6 1LD (map)

Get down and get funky, as we celebrate women and their voices with an afternoon of stonking funk and soul floor fillers. In this special International Women's Day funkathon we guarantee to get you raising your arms in the air and throwing some serious shapes!

From Aretha to Sharon Jones, The Supremes to Donna Summer, Nina Simone to Spanky Wilson, you'll need to whack on some kicks and prepare to dance, as we embark on a journey from the roots of black music through to current club sounds. Be inspired by projections, bathe in bubbles and draw some Power Women on our giant drawing wall.

There'll be screenings of a whole host of radical short films, animations and protest shorts in the back bar to celebrate some incredible women and movements.

20% of all ticket sales will go to West End Women and Girls Centre.
