What we're about

Antidote is a growing community of folks that recognise the value of playfulness and having an opportunity to shake off the day. We run uplifting music, dance & games sessions every week that act as an antidote to the weariness caused by our wonderful city. We aim to steer people towards a more joyful life through our marvellous events, online presence & our creative collaborations.

Every workshop is followed by a chinwag in the pub across the road!

Remember Remember...Games To Make You Go BOOM!

Online event

Overthrow your internal Government with PLAY Over 400 years ago, some bloke called Guy tried to overthrow the British Government. It didn’t go so well. BUT. Using that as inspiration, we will play games and exercises that dive into your internal government and turn things on their head! GET INTO THE COUP! Games that make you question yourself, look at others differently and there might be a few fireworks thrown in! Loose Baker is a games mistress, play expert and drag artist. Loose has been running workshops for 200 years and looks forward to zooming (or otherwise) into your play muscles.
