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.

We are Cristina and Rosie, two final year students who have just returned from a year abroad (in Lisbon and Norway) and who have been performing together for the past 3 years. We mostly do acoustic covers of pop songs and some older classics, as well as venturing into indie and folk occasionally. We are extremely excited to be a part of the performances at Cafe down the Lane, and look forward to playing some of our favourite songs; maybe even the odd Christmas song!

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.
