Come early... Grab your war paint.. then dance the night away!

WITCH:
Throughout history, 'Witch' has been used to persecute, silence and take power from women and others. It's time to reclaim the WITCH and make it empowering again.

JOIN THE REVOLUTION:
We are the great-grandchildren of the witches you could not burn! Together we celebrate and challenge the archetype of The Witch and Hysteria. We'll be calling upon spirituality and intuition, and calling out so-called pathologies mental wellbeing. Join GIRL GANG Sheffield for an evening of witchiness, music, rituals, and empowerment!

Avoid the witch hunters, come down to DINA @ 6pm. Taking you on a journey past stigma and judgement, become empowered as you meet members of the resistance that guide the way.

WAR PAINT:
Reclaim your scars and wear them as war paint, paint your face, arms or body with symbols of your triumph over adversity and glitter!

PEOPLE HERE:
‘Ghost pop/post-ghost punk, reverb-heavy, haunting vocals of Claire Williams can definitely be described as ghostly and the supernatural themes in her lyrics match closely. Though there’s an accessibility to all three tracks which warrants the 'pop' tag, there are still elements of garage punk which give more of an underground feel to the record.’ -now then

BABEPUNCH:
