Sustainable Housing presents: Jam Sessions
34 Finchley Road, Fallowfield, M14 6FH Manchester, United Kingdom
This is the first of the fortnightly Sustainable Housing Jam Sessions.
We will be providing space for you all to come down (with your own instruments) and play along with some like-minds, make some friends, and perhaps learn something about sustainable living in the process.
We’ll be keeping it short – 2 hours, ending at a reasonable time for the sake of our neighbours.
See you all there!
