Building a Different Story for Global Justice
Shared lunch, workshops, speakers, art, kids space

Benefit scroungers. Environmental extremists. Migration crisis. There is a story being told that the people are to blame for austerity, climate change and economic crisis. We know another story. We know a story where the rich and powerful stole from the poor. Where the people that caused the collapse of the banks are the ones profiting from austerity.

But we can build a different story.

We are building a story of sharing economies, pay-as-you-feel cafes, cooperatives, solidarity and resistance. Stories where migrants are welcomed with open arms and deportations are fought tooth and nail. We are building a story with social justice at its heart.

Join us to shake up the stories we're told and build new ones for a more just and sustainable world.
If you'd like to volunteer to help make the day happen, we'd love to hear from you! Please get in touch about helping with cooking, stewarding, running a kids activity or anything else you'd like to contribute. Contact Laura at

If you'd like to come but the £2 donation is not affordable, we can easily send you a discount code so the ticket will be free. Please email and we'll send you the code asap. Thank you!


Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
You can email Laura at: or phone on 0113 373 1752

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is very helpful guidance on the Woodhouse Community Centre website that can help you find out how to get there by bus, car or train. There is on street parking just outside the venue.

Does the venue have disabled access?
Yes! Absolutely. The building entrance is fully accessible from the street, and all the activities will be taking place on the ground floor, where there are also disabled-accessible toilets. On-street parking is available near the centre, which is also easily accessible by public transport.
If you have any questions about the building, you can contact Woodhouse Community Centre directly on 0113 245 9610

Are there guides available for those with visual impairments?
Yes! We have volunteers who have received guide training and have some previous experience. There is a part of the registration form to tell us if this will be useful to you. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Nope! Save the paper. We'll have a printed list of everyone's names so we can use that to sign you in.

I'm from a campaigning group, can I book a stall or workshop?
Woodhouse Community Centre isn't massive, so we're trying to make really great use of the space. With that in mind, we don't have room for stalls, but instead are offering groups/organisations display space on the wall. Also, there are some small spaces available to host discussions about your campaign, or something you're interested in having a conversation about! Just have a good read of the event description and make sure it fits in with the theme.
Get in touch with Laura at or phone on 0113 373 1752 to book display space or a discussion slot.
