Remember you are not alone - domestic abuse can happen to anyone no matter your age, race, class, culture, disability, gender, sexuality or lifestyle.

Please join us for an incredible evening of music in aid of Manchester Women's Aid, written and performed by singer-composer Taylor Giacoma. 

Hold On is a cycle of four songs telling of one woman's journey as she holds on to a broken, loveless relationship: from the desperation of being lost but willing to do anything to make it work, to the heart-breaking but necessary decision to leave.

A chorus of 'I'll hold on to whatever I can' repeats a message too many of us repeat in our own lives and in our own relationships, believing that 'anything's better than nothing' - that being with someone must be better than being all alone. Hold On is a story of holding on, and then finally, of having the strength to let go.

Taylor Giacoma is an American singer, pianist, conductor, composer, arranger, tutor, and keen coffee-drinker, now based in Marple at Semitone Studios. Taylor is also the conductor for the Wilmslow Guild, and is a Quaker and the human companion of an amazing cat called Scout!

Please join us for this fabulous evening's entertainment at The Pankhurst Centre, and help to raise money for Manchester Women's Aid. Tickets are by donation through our Eventbrite page.
