Alternative Fashion Fest / what is it? & what's next?

The fashion show with a twist! We showcase the unique, the unusual, the beautiful; highlighting our wonderfully diverse subculture to ultimately create social change around prejudice & hate crime.

Following our hugely successful debut in June 2015, we launched our official tour at our original venue Circo, Albert Dock, Liverpool on Friday 9th October 2015.

Although our Encore Show was free entry, advance tickets for all other venues will be available to purchase online from 'EventBrite'

To purchase tickets, please click the 'ticket icon' in the top right corner of your chosen show in the 'Dates' section. Payment is via Paypal meaning you have the comfort and security of that service. You can use your credit or debit card, bank transfer or your existing PayPal funds. You may also pay 'On the Door' at each venue, but our shows are popular so to avoid disappointment, drop us a line beforehand to ensure availability.

A proportion of all ticket sales is split 50/50 between a local charity from each city we tour and our own chosen charity, The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

Whether you're a designer, a keen sponsor or just wanting to spectate, we look forward to entertaining you with a show like nothing you have seen before. Roll up! we're coming to a city near you! Watch our video below:

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation / Our Chosen Charity

With a socially conscious message against prejudice and hate crime, each show will raise funds to be split equally between The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and a local cause in each city. So, as we take our unique and diverse show on the road on our UK tour, we'd love you all to join us! Please help us spread the word!

Please visit for Sophie's story and the amazing work done by her family to Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred & Intolerance Everywhere.

Dare to Shine / Authors Raising Awareness

Dare to Shine was born when Emma Hibbs - a long-time supporter of S.O.P.H.I.E. - put out a call for writers who wished to celebrate life and difference through stories. The result was a fantastic team of authors, editors and designers from all over the world, who have worked together to bring this one-of-a-kind project to life. 100% of profits from the anthology's sales will go to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, to aid in education and raising awareness of alternative subcultures, and lobbying to change the UK hate crime laws to include a sixth strand for people who identify as belonging to alternative subcultures. Dare to Shine was released on Sunday 22nd May 2016 - World Goth Day..... learn more
