"What would a world without borders look like, sound like, feel like, and be like?"
After its successful week-long festival back in the spring, The Bunker is throwing open its doors for three nights this November to look once again at what the world around us looks like, sounds like, and feels like in the wake of a turbulent 2017. From spoken word to dance, music to cabaret, each evening is a snapshot into the lives of those in our society that we don't always hear about.
The evening is FREE to attend, and instead of ticket price we are asking all those in attendace to consider donating some money which will be split equally between our three chosen charities: Refugees at Home, Safeline, and HOPE not hate. We feel these three charities encompass the ethos of Bunker Without Borders, and we are delighted to support them during this festival.

The Bunker have partnered with Refugees At Home, to raise awareness of the UK charity that connects those with a spare room in their home with asylum seekers and refugees in need of a place to stay short-or long-term, and has provided over 38,000 nights' accommodation in two short years.
The HOPE not hate campaign was founded in 2004 to provide a positive antidote to the politics of hate.
HOPE not hate was established to offer a more positive and community-focused way of doing anti-fascism. They prioritise working in communities, with town centre demonstrations and engaging and speaking to local people.
Their campaigning has always been backed up by first class research and intelligence, and HOPE not hate have exposed the illegal activities of extremist groups, and been able to foil serious plots to commit acts of violence and even terror.
Established in 1994, Safeline is a specialised charity working to prevent sexual abuse* and to support those affected in their recovery. Safeline offers its services to people of all ages, regardless of gender, sexuality or race, who are survivors of abuse. Family members and friends of abuse survivors can also use Safeline’s services.
They provide a comprehensive range of services for people affected by sexual abuse, including: Counselling, National helplines and online support, Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs), Training for professionals, parents and anyone affected by sexual abuse and Prevention projects, one-to-one support and peer mentoring to keep vulnerable young people safe and enable them to fulfil their potential.
