Event details

The Music Department are delighted to be collaborating with Mencap Southampton for a new monthly musical lunchtime experience at their Café Down the Lane. On the first Wednesday of each month, starting in June, some of the department’s Showcase performers will be presenting an hour of music for the Café’s patrons at 1pm. The first session presents singer-songwriter Sarah Newell.

Southampton Mencap is found at 187a Portswood Road, located behind Coffee #1 on Portswood High Street. It is accessible via the access road next to the Natwest Bank with plenty of parking directly in front of the Mencap building, second on the left.

Café Down the Lane has been set up to help people with learning disabilities to learn vital work-place skills in a “real-world” environment. It is reasonably priced and welcomes regular patrons and new visitors through its doors on Wednesday lunchtimes. Our performers are helping support this very worthy project and we hope some of you may be able to do the same.
