The Real Junk Food Project


Mar 2018

Foodhall Café is an open community venue which offers food that would have been thrown away, surplus donated by retailers, on a "Pay-as-you-feel" basis. It is run by volunteers and encourages community engagement between the general public including students, homeless people, mental health groups, isolated people, people with addiction problems and people who need to access food.

You can help, whether by just visiting to eat and socialise, or maybe food preparation, or even playing the house piano.

The cafe opens Thursdays and Fridays, there are also art workshops and reading groups, and some nights it becomes a DIY venue for fundraiser gigs.

It is a great performance, drawing a compelling narrative through the radical people’s history of Britain in folk song, stories and poems. Part talk, part history lecture, part folk club sing-a-long, part poetry slam, part storytelling session… Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations. Featuring Tim Ralphs, Roo Bramley and Robin Grey.

Doors open 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
