Board Gaming with Leeds Meeples
Board gaming is for everyone! If you've ever felt like trying out board games such as Carcassonne, Settlers Of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Dominion, Agricola, Chrononauts and Apples to Apples, then come along and join a relaxed group of people. We believe that board gaming is all about socialising, having fun and making new friends in an environment that makes everyone comfortable. Bring a game to share if you like, or just drop in any time during the afternoon. We play games as short as 20 minutes as well as long games. Entry is by optional donation to cover the room hire
£2 [optional donation].

Fictions of Every Kind - Hearts
One of our early words of encouragement cards read, "If you write - you're a writer." We believe this just as much now as we did then - that it's the act of writing, not our relative 'success', that defines us as writers. In honour of St Valentine, welcome to our February event: Hearts, hosted by Jenna, Claire and Sarah. We have two great invited speakers at this event, and as usual, there'll be a writers' open mic. Anybody is welcome to come along, even if they only want to sit & listen. Our invited speakers at this event will be:
SUZANNAH EVANS A poet from Sheffield whose work has appeared in Magma, The Rialto, and The North magazine. Her pamphlet Confusion Species was a winner in the 2011 Poetry Business Book competition, and she has been poet in residence at Bank Street Arts.
+ WRITERS' OPEN MIC at which short stories, true stories, flash fiction, poetry, and excerpts of larger work are all welcome. Please keep your contributions at 5 minutes or under, to give everybody the chance to read.
+ Music from RED TREES.

Otchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp
OTPMD are an impossibly crazy endeavour. They took a classical marimba player, a dadaist clown and violinist, free jazz double bass and trombone, a punk guitarist, and Dog Faced Hermans' old drummer Wilf Plum, and turned them into an afrobeat band. Sort of. Their gigs are beautiful, suave, dancing affairs, equal parts Swiss art-punk and West African rhythmic drive. Joy is the point.
Howie Reeve, ex of Glasgow marvels Tattie Toes, is on the road as a solo act these days. Super stripped down, it's just him and his weirdly tuned acoustic bass guitar, playing beautifully crafted songs influenced by De Kift, The Ex and Mike Watt. It's that end of things, but very much his own conception, He released his second album, We are in repair, in September.
Nut Club are a trio from Leeds, born out of a love for, and disillusionment with Jazz, as much of it is practised in the U.K. They feature members of Shatners Bassoon and Solanki, and they pretty much sound like a cross between those two bands - the minutemen, New Orleans funk, and free jazz are the three points holding them up.

Ark Noise Presents
Ark Noise Bookings proudly presents a night of ambient, atmospheric music from...
Glottalstop is Oli Barrett (Petrels) who released debut album 'Woodsmoke' on Tartaruga Records earlier this year. Sourced almost entirely from a collection of tape recordings dating back 20 years, the two long-form tracks that make up this LP are an exercise in slowbuild tension, unsettling claustrophobia, and dense textural collage. This distorted tape assemblage is tied together with additional improvised cello and electronics, never standing still, but letting each sound explore its full potential before moving on.
"Insanely awesome debut release from Glottalstop aka the Petrels dude, basking in an unsettling tape manipulated tension. Woodsmoke is fucking fantastic, two side long pieces that are dark as hell, the A side is super minimal and the B side cranks the horror volume to 11, the whole thing sounds like a haunted mansion coming to life to chill yer bones." - Anti-Gravity Bunny
"A record this fucking good only come around once in a long while" - Anti-Gravity Bunny
