All are welcome.

The main objective of the event is to publicise, gather material, amuse the audience and, of course, liberate and empower the down-trodden masses.
The audience were be invited to hand over material/documents of rejections, disappointments and personal slights by using questionnaires available on the night or by donating materials they bring along with them. The reward for this will be a drink of their choice.
6pm - 7pm: Improvised Jazz from Rus Pearson (double bass), Sean Foran (Electric Piano) and possibly Matt Bourne (Cello). Plus music focused on ruining epic compositional climaxes with unmemorable, pointless and plain-wrong musical conclusions.
7.30pm - 8pm: Stand-up style public reading/re-enactment of various rejections, with musical accompaniment facilitated by sculptor, organist and performance artist Scott Senogles (all 6 foot 7 of him).
