September is the last month of Bold Tendencies - and there are still lots of events coming up!

Wednesday 4th September, don't miss the first Artist Dinner by Sophie Lee in collaboration with Michael Davies of Franks Cafe, only £25 per ticket. Check out MOVE, an evening of screenings, live music, performance by artist Hannah Perry. Next week Bold Tendencies will bring you the continuation of their Africa Is A Film season, curated by Basia Lewandowska Cummings, and and a dance performance by Cecile B Evans. BRIGHT is inspired by the televised appearances and electric scenography of North Korea’s all girl group, the Wangjaesan Dancers and will take place in front of Evans' installation of a rendered sunset backdrop on the top floor of the car park.
In the meantime don't forget that Bold Tendencies is open form 11am-11pm Wednesday-Sunday until the end of this month.

Original Recipe Meal
7pm, Wednesday 4th September
Original Recipe Meal is a collaboration between artist Sophie Lee and Frank’s Café Head Chef Michael Davies and is part of a series of dinners devised by artists for the Bold Tendencies' Artist Dining Space. A bone soup is found in China, 3000 years old. The excavation of a Roman tomb disgorges an untouched bottle of wine. In a river near Oxford, amidst neolithic weapons and tools, the first chunks of barley bread bob and float. Put down your spoons, throw out your Wholefoods; it's time to eat something really nourishing. Join us for a menu made up of the first foods, the bare bones; ancient building blocks – basic and defined. Click here to book now!
