Alice Nicholls

Friday 7th February

Food served from 7:30pm

Music starts at 8:30pm

Tickets: £6 Available at the Cafe

Part pop, part blues, part folk and all-original, she excels at defying definition: the songs vary from delicate strummed strings and soaring melodies to gritty, growly piano power chords and everything in between, and her lyrics, ranging from gently poetic to downright obscure but always immensely powerful, give you food for thought and stay with you long after the first listen.

An Evening With Lydia Bauman: Australia

Tuesday 15th October
Food served after lecture
Talk starts at 6.30pm
Tickets: £10 (including tea or coffee)

 

Marking the first major survey of Australian art in the UK for 50 years, this exhibition will span more than 200 years from 1800 to the present day and seeks to uncover the fascinating social and cultural evolution of a nation through its art.

Two hundred works including painting, drawing, photography, watercolours and multimedia will shed light on a period of rapid and intense change; from the impact of colonisation on an indigenous people, to the pioneering nation building of the 19th century through to the enterprising urbanisation of the last 100 years.
