Violet Nights

Violet Nights is a space for young people to socialise and express their views on and explore topical issues with music, performance and discussion. 

In a more relaxed format to panel discussions, people aged 18 – 30 have the opportunity to exchange ideas and engage in issues that feel important to them.

Violet Nights is a real-life forum for online conversations. Bring your ideas and passion to debate on everything from pop culture to current affairs. Past events have included an exploration of queer activism now and in the future, a look at body politics in an age of social media and a debate on the phenomenon of cancel culture.

Violet Nights is a monthly event curated by young people for young people.
