CUSHION MAKING: Help us make some comfy seating for our film festival with some stunningly designed covers. All material supplied and our seamstresses will be on hand to help and advise.

POSTCARDS: Commemorate LGBT figures from the past with these specially designed postcards. Decorate and send to your friends. All art materials supplied.

PING PONG: Have a game of table tennis. All set up and ready to go - just pick up the bat and you're off!

ONE-PAGE ZINE: Create your own 8 page zine using just one sheet of paper and share your story or celebrate your fave LGBT figures.


Let’s create some history!

Be part of our pop-up exhibition by adding your memorabilia to our timeline. Bring something from your own LGBT+ past - maybe a photo, flyer, zine, badge, newsletter or concert ticket. Add memories and drawings on post-its, so we can create our own one-off exhibition.

The timeline will be displayed on tables in the Brodrick Hall and we’ll add to it throughout the day. We’ll take photos and film the exhibition for the LQFF website, so there’s a record of our collective creation.

All memorabilia will be returned at the end of the event and the exhibition will be staffed at all times.
