Caffe Queero

Facebook event pagecaffequeero

An evening of discussion and making friends.
Caffè Queero will be a monthly event, where LGBTQ individuals and the people who love them can come along, share ideas, meet new people and have a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
This month's topic will be "what does 'queer' mean to me?". 

There will be an opportunity to find out about Queer and Now and how you can get involved, as well as to bring your own thoughts to the table.

Alternatively, if you'd simply like to meet friendly people in Leeds without getting involved, you're welcome as well.

Please bring veggie friendly cakes and sweet stuff to share if you can afford it.

Bold As Brass

Proud to announce the very first Bold as Brass night - Friday 12th of September at Wharf Chambers - featuring super talented Leeds band Me and My Friends.

We'll be playing a brass and beatsy mix of Afrobeat, Dub, Latin, Balkans, Bangra... and any other genre that makes you want to jump up! There will be funk, but not THAT funk - we'll be playing what you don't get to hear everywhere else...

 

Our special guests for our first foray are Me and My Friends, who play genre melting music both gentle and heavy. They manage to cover afrobeat, dub/reggae styles, folk and balkans influences, all in the same place which is why we ♥ them so much, and why they were our first choice.

 

Tickets are £5 on the door - 7.30 start, band at 9.30, DJs either side til Midnight.
