Event details

The Music Department are delighted to be collaborating with Mencap Southampton for a monthly musical lunchtime experience at their Café Down the Lane. On the first Wednesday of each month some of the department’s Showcase performers will be presenting an hour of music for the Café’s patrons at 1pm.

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.

Michaela Pugh is a folk/pop singer-songwriter from Kent. She is regularly found performing as a solo artist and as part of the University’s gospel and pop choir Jazzmanix in a variety of performance venues, from The Talking Heads and Turner Sims in Southampton to cathedrals and care homes. Alongside her guitarist, Charlie English, Michaela looks forward to performing folk/pop covers ranging from Joni Mitchell to recent artists such as Lucy Rose, plus originals at Mencap Southampton.

You can follow Michaela on social media through Facebook:, or SoundCloud:

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.

Please come along to enjoy a snack or drink during this performance.
