An oasis for local talent

Dates: the third Friday of the month, in January, March, May, July, September and November.

Café Create is a fair-trade café/bar with live entertainment. It runs six times a year on alternate months in the Trinity Centre next to Holy Trinity Church. It is always on a Friday evening.

Drinks and nibbles are free but a donation to cover the cost helps us to run the event. Doors open at 7.30 p.m. and the first live set is usually about 8.30-9.15. After a break for topping up drinks a second set runs roughly 9.45-10.30. The event finishes at 11.00.

A good friend of Cafe Create is Nicky Johns. You can watch one of her performances here:

 

A small team sets up and decorates the room so that the atmosphere is convivial and friendly with lounge music and lighting effects. Since beginning in 2007 entertainment has included live music (electric and acoustic), DJs, comedy, story-telling, poetry and a live artist doing sketches. Some other varieties of entertainment would be welcome e.g drama or magic.

If you would like to get on stage, ring Steve Tilley (01275 543332) for a time and date. Performers whose work is unknown may be given a short slot on the first occasion.
