So sit back and soak up the smooth, velvety vibes of the brown sugar herself....

Have you ever met someone who can do everything? And brilliantly too?! Well this extremely talented performance poet, B-Boy, great guitar player, host of 'Forget What Ya Heard' and more will be hitting us with his cleverly crafted lyrical prowess. Don't say you haven't been warned!!!


Emma Ako

Nebula Nebula
If you haven't seen the artwork of this gifted spirit and kind soul then you're missing out big tiiiiiime! To do an interpretation of performance poetry as well as capture the very essence of an atmosphere where anything could happen is not easy, however, this artist makes it look as easy as ABC! Come along to see what she'll create next, you never know.....you might feature in her masterpiece!


More details are to come re presentation however......

There's the awesome, healthy vegan banquet lovingly made by Emma Ako. If you wanna share in the delight of the delicious, nutritious and healing treats then turn up on time to grab a plate because once it's gone it's gone! It's only £3 too so no excuse not to join in....


So as usual, it gives me great pleasure to announce that some of the money raised on the night will go towards the Panzi Hospital and Foundation in Eastern Congo. These vital funds go towards supporting the tough work of Dr Denis Mukwege - founder of this safe haven for many - nurses, training more nurses, medical equipment, beds, hospital extensions, the foundation which has an orphanage and an education centre which teaches the women everything from basic maths to economic empowerment and social equality.


We owe alot to the people who run this amazing place and those who desperately need it so let's do it while having fun and most importantly....BREAK THE SILENCE!!!
