Renowned Songwriter Grace Petrie to perform at benefit for Survivors’ Network
Survivors’ Network is hosting an exciting event on Sunday 15th May, 2-6pm, to raise awareness and fundraise for their service. The Grace Petrie Cafe Gig in newly opened cafe MADE Brighton, will be a rare opportunity to see Grace Petrie, renowned songwriter and activist, perform in an intimate and informal setting, while raising funds for a worthy cause. The event is free, though donations are of course encouraged.
Grace’s music ranges from politics to romance and back again, with the occasional sing-a-long thrown in too. She has performed alongside the likes of Billy Bragg, Josie Long and Emmy the Great, and has recently featured on a support tour for Jeremy Corbyn.
She will be joined by Caitlin HT, a local performance poet whose work covers LGBT, feminist and anti-racist politics. Caitlin was a co-founder of the Brighton Feminist Collective, and is currently a member of staff at Survivors’ Network. She has performed at demonstrations of 5,000 people and was a finalist in the Hammer and Tongue Annual Slam in 2014.
Hannah Brackenbury completes the set list, with musical comedy, including a now well known cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’, with over 9,000 views on Youtube. Hannah has reached the finals of the Musical Comedy Awards this year, and has released two studio albums of her work.
