who can read music and wants to take part should download
the sheet music from Facebook; anyone who can't read music
is still welcome to come along and listen.

Tuesday 16 December
6.30pm-8.30pm doors open 6pm at Keyworth Centre,  Keyworth
Street; free; booking essential
councilnews@southwark.gov.uk
How harmless is banter? When does banter become harassment?
How seriously do we take the issue? What can be done to
create a culture where women feel safe on a night out?
Comedian Sara Pascoe is set to take part in a dynamic
discussion about ‘banter’ vs harassment alongside writer and
co-founder of blog The Vagenda Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett,
London Evening Standard journalist Rosamund Urwin, founder
of website TruLad Chris Steward, Susuana Antubam NUS Women's
Officer and DJ Shalaah Tahira. The event is organised by
Southwark Council to mark the launch of its new Women’s
Safety Charter - a voluntary scheme for bars and clubs
across the borough to help ensure women can enjoy a night
out without fear of harassment or intimidation. The council
has also partnered with Hollaback, an organisation against
street harassment, to help deliver training to venue staff
on how best to deal with the issue.
