Soul Casserole

The Soul Casserole DJs Dustee Du and Alkie Tuner have a bit of a reputation for making DJing look like it's one big lark, it's difficult to tell who is enjoying the night more, the crowd or the DJs. One thing's for sure these DJs are passionate about the music they play.

A spicy melange of Stax, Trojan, Motown, Blue Note, Zodiac, Chess and Loma Records. They also have a late night tendency to throw a blend of randomness into the pot; from Reggae to Ragga and Blues to Hip hop. Expect an unpretentious night of full speed funky beats!

A Night Of: Vintage Beats

Having started in summer 2017, Vintage Beats has quickly built up a large following in just a few months.

With all the biggest neo-soul/hip hop/jazz/rnb tunes from the last few decades, played with high levels of musicianship, it's safe to say the vibe at Vintage Beats is something to be experienced. 

The atmosphere is helped along by a crowd who come for the love of the music, and ever changing run of guest brass players, singers, and mcs who join in. This is not a night to be missed.

SHAPERS OF SOCIETY SWAP SHOP SOCIAL

https://www.facebook.com/events/378877715989890/

Shapers of Society return to the Hendricks Room with their Swap Shop Social; redefining fast fashion by presenting a revolving wardrobe, as clothes change in the moment of swaps and turnover of styles.

The bohemian space upstairs acts as a walk-in wardrobe, a dress up where you can play, experiment through sharing clothing, try things on and hang out for a social chat.  This month we will also be adding an opportunity for you to customise your wears, on hand will be needles and thread, scrap fabric and a badge machine.

Swap Shops are an opportunity for you swap those unwanted things taking up space in your wardrobe; including clothes, accessories and shoes and refresh your wardrobe for free, by sharing once loved items and passing them onto a new home.

How it works: To enter you need to bring items to SWAP (maximum of 7). These items need to be clean and in good condition. Think of items you loved and now want to pass on, things at the back of wardrobe that have never been worn. You will be given a token for every item you bring, you can then swap these tokens for clothes and accessories. 

Shapers of Society use creative interventions to inspire sustainable cultures and alternative fashion economies enabling the re-circulation of fashion movement.
