News and Events
All cafe events are advertised in the weekly newsletter and on our events pages. We'll use this page to keep track of events that haven't yet made it onto the events page, just to make sure we don't double book!
If you have an idea for a cafe evening - eg a skill that you'd be willing to share, an idea for something you'd like to learn or a great film you'd like us to show get in touch and we'll see what we can arrange.
The regular slot for Transition Cafe is the first Thursday of the month at CB1 cafe in Mill Road - we usually start at 7.30 and finish by 9.00. From time to time, we may do occasional 'Cafe specials' if there's something unmissable on another date...
Plans for 2014 are 6 March - Cropshare, 3 April - Cambake. Future dates are 1 May, 5 June, 3 July.
