About Sticky Bits

Sticky Bits C.I.C is the operator of the LGBThq building; as well as running LGBT+ social groups, they also provide resources, offices, activity spaces, counselling rooms and more to other charities, organisations and community groups.

A new cafe is planned to open later in 2017. Until then Sticky Bits will act as a non-commercial 'Community & Information Centre', with light refreshments as required.
