Tickets for the next, Black Men Who Brunch, are now available online.
If you would like to contribute by performing, or leading a skills, development, or arts workshop, find out more below, and use the linked form to send us your pitch for the last Sunday in November, December or January.
Whether you are in a band that is finally ready to get out of the rehearsal room and on stage; or one that is tired of playing to thousands in stadiums and want to play a more intimate gig, get in touch.
We want to make Black Men Who Brunch more than a good square meal; we want a platform for talent, a beacon for shared learning, and a reliable source of fun and support.
Success will all depend on how willing we are to share our talents, knowledge, and networks with each other.
If you have been able to make it along to Brunch recently, you’re starting to understand the vibe. Brunch is our intentional creation of space for ourselves and each other – not just to survive, but to thrive. . . and even to flourish.
We had a great turnout in September and October, and I encourage those who came to return and to bring a friend – this is one of those things that grows when you share it.
Brunch would not be possible without the support of our volunteers – THE KINFOLK
If you can spare the time, have good people skills, and a can-do approach, you’ll fit right in

Alongside pitches for workshops and performances, we remain keen to receive pitches for participation in a marketplace from Black queer men who have relevant retail or services businesses – if you are interested, get in touch.
Thanks to a grant received in October 2021 from the National Lottery Community Fund, we have been able to improve our capacity to make Black Men Who Brunch more accessible online and in-app, and eke out more time to improve the quality of production and partnerships.
The grant from the Local Connections Fund also meant that (crucially for brunch!) we have been able to address the challenges we’ve experienced in the past in sharing meals.
We will now be able to record a live podcast and make an edited version available for those who are unable to physically attend, to create video outputs together, and livestream some elements of workshops and performances. We are grateful to National Lottery players for their contribution in support of our efforts – nice one!
