There’s no Mayfest this year, and that means no Mayfest Opening Party. But we’re going to throw a party anyway. We’ve invited the amazing Bristol superstar Nuala Honan (who you may have seen in last year’s WE ARE LIGHTNING! house band) to play for us plus a few other surprises, and there’ll be dancing and drinks. We’d love you to be there.
And you’ll be partying for a good cause as all proceeds from ticket sales go towards the festival and our other work in Bristol
Nuala Honan is an Australian-born dynamo artist, harvesting 15 years of experience with a fresh sound that lies somewhere between her rural desert upbringing, and her fierce female pop contemporaries. Her voice celebrates the same duality, sliding naturally from beguiling sweetness to raw power as the song demands. You can expect her usual charm and breathtaking voice, but with a little less strings and a little more noise. Driven by post-punk rawness yet still, audaciously, featuring moments of operatic singing over the tumultuous drums, Nuala wields her Telecaster and leads a killer band in a pop-drama, exploring the strength in vulnerability and connection.

INFORMATION ON TICKETS AND DONATIONS
As this event is partly to raise funds for MAYK, we have added donation options at £3, £5 and £20. These donation 'tickets' will not gain you entry to the gig – they're there as an optional add-on to the standard ticket prices if you'd like to support our work. In other words, you still need to buy a full price or concession ticket in order to attend the gig. Booking fees on donations will be passed on to MAYK.
