A clubbing experience for adults with learning disabilities is coming to Glasgow next month.
Under One Roof will be held at the SWG3 arts and music venue on Eastvale Place – the first time the event has been in Scotland.
The event aims to give party seekers a place to make friends and enjoy a night out in a fully inclusive and safe environment.
Jonathan Dawson, general manager at SWG3, said: “Everyone, no matter their needs, should have the opportunity to enjoy the great benefits and joys of clubbing, so we are really thrilled to have Under One Roof coming to SWG3.
“As a venue, we are always searching for ways to engage people from all walks of life and to democratise dance floors.
“Under One Roof is likely to attract a lot of people who have never felt safe enough to enter a night club, and that’s really exciting for us.”
Founded by Alice Woods, who is one-quarter of the team behind techno stalwart, Meat Free, Under One Roof was established in 2017 – designed to open up dancefloors throughout the UK. This is the first time the event will take place in Scotland.
Alice said: “For many the lack of physical access to clubs or overwhelming new environments, and in some cases verbal abuse, means that there is a whole portion of society who are currently missing out on what Glasgow does best – music.
“We are delighted to bring Under One Roof to Scotland for the very first time.
“SWG3 is renowned for its incredible parties and this will hopefully be a night to remember for a lot of people who might have never been clubbing before.”
Scotland’s first ever Under One Roof night will take place on Thursday 13 June from 6:30pm-9:30pm. JD Wilkes of Optimo fame will provide the soundtrack.
* Tickets are on sale priced at £3.00. They can be purchased via the SWG3 website.
