Brighter Sound, The Hub UK and Music:Leeds presents…
Both Sides Now – Open Space
Making gender equality in the music industry a reality… what can we all do?
Both Sides Now is a large-scale initiative taking place across the North of England to support emerging female artists and up-and-coming industry professionals to transform the future of the music industry.
We want to create a growing network, deliver sustainable activity, and affect permanent change around the perception, opportunities and profiling of women in music, from the classroom, to the boardroom, to the stage.
This first ‘Open Space’ event is for anyone with an interest in this conversation to come together and discuss what could make a real difference – whether that’s about role models, motherhood, education, social mobility, policy change or something else entirely.
Unfolding over a series of informal conversations, the agenda will be yours to set. You might want to convene a conversation about something you feel passionately about, or join a conversation kick-started by someone else. More than just a talking shop, our aim is to get things and people moving.
The event is open to everyone, food and drinks will be provided and there will be activities for children.
We use an inclusive definition of ‘women’ and welcome participants who are women and non-binary, both cis and trans.
Open Space is a method of facilitation, where participants create and manage their own agenda of discussions around a central theme.
Female artists and practitioners based in Leeds and surrounding areas may also want to check out the opportunity to take part in a 5 day Artist in Residence program with Shiva Fesharaki in March.

An Evening with Nicky Siano – an exclusive intimate gig.
Direct from New York, legendary pioneer and resident of Studio 54 and The Gallery Nicky Siano returns to Sheaf St for one special night.
Nicky first visited us back in February last year for a big party in our event space this time Nicky is back for something a bit different. A one-off special night in Sheaf St Bar, a proper party – in the words of Nicky ‘That home atmosphere, that you’re at a party – in no way a Discotech’
Limited to just 100 tickets! Nicky will play an extended set on the evening with just one other DJ on the bill – Billy Black (reboot_)
Musically this is not your glitzy glamour Disco Nicky has a whole host of interesting tracks, once forgotten tune, his own special re-edits and undiscovered tracks in store for you.
This will be a really intimate affair a very special up close and personal evening.
With a brand new sound system and visuals in the bar were all set for cracking party.
Nicky Siano is the last surviving pioneer of the 70’s dance music scene. He is the only person left who was there at the very beginning, remaining relevant and involved through the 70’s – in the decade of the disco explosion & as a resident at STUDIO 54. Nicky’s first job playing records was at New York’s famed club THE ROUND TABLE in 1972. In 1973, at the age of 17, he opened/designed and was the DJ at THE GALLERY.

After a run of packed houses at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, host and creator of The Comedian’s Comedian Podcast Stuart Goldsmith will be bringing his latest hour of stand-up, Like I Mean It, to Sheaf St in 2018.
Stu’s finally getting accustomed to parenthood and living as a family, and now the gnawing desperation he used to feel in everyday life has been replaced by this molten core of joy that is powering everything he does. The only downside? The surface happiness upon which he used to rely has evaporated completely, to be replaced by oceans of resentment!
People talk about “digging deep” and “carrying on”, but Stu’s too busy worrying about his wife’s insomnia, the price of blueberries, and how surprisingly difficult it is to find somewhere you can scream with rage in your car without unnerving the postman. Not to mention swimming lessons, Brexit and what a weird place the world has turned into since the baby was conceived…
And how does everyone else cope with the early mornings?
And what’s the secret of lasting contentment?
And why, if it’s a genuine medical condition, does his wife freak out only at the sound of Stu eating, and not the baby?!TICKETS
She’s a regular on ‘Mock The Week’ and a much-loved figure on ‘Live At The Apollo’, as well as being all over Radio 4 – for whom she’s making her very own series in 2018, after extensive stints on ‘The News Quiz’, ‘Just A Minute’, ‘The Now Show’ and plenty more. All this makes it sound like Zoe Lyons has some sort of idea what she’s doing in life. But does she? Or is she the perfect example of an Entry Level Human?
Decide for yourself, as this hugely popular comic returns with a fresh crop of ‘quick-fire observational gags, delivered with utter conviction’ (Chortle), not to mention ‘proper laugh-out-loud one-liners’ (The Herald). And, she ‘has what it takes to delight any crowd’. That one’s from the Guardian. Are you going to argue with them? Actually, don’t answer that. Just come and see Zoe to find out.
‘A hugely enjoyable mix of brutal putdowns and richly funny stories, Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd’ Guardian
‘Zoe Lyons really cuts the mustard’ Scotsman
‘Confident and razor sharp’ ObserverTICKETS
