Now that the extension is done, the excellent quality av projector and screen or in situ and we have an alcohol licence…
… all we need are your excellent ideas for Mixer events to use the space in the evenings after cafe hours.
We don’t want to give up the space for weekly events but are open to suggestions from people wanting to host performance events and cultural exchanges rather than regular classes or clubs. This is a really excellent venue and we would love to see it used a lot more in the evenings.
Please note the following Bold Vision policies
