Joshua Idehan plus Global Kitchen Supper

Loves Cafe presents a very special night on Thursday April 6th.

Welcoming spoken word artist and musician, Joshua Idehan, to Loves ‘ stage for the first time!

Opening for Joshua are Jaidah, Malcolm and Sophie, 3 of Weston’s very own Slam Poets, offering up some of their Spoken Words. You may have caught them before at our “Rhyme Against the Tide” bi-monthly Poetry Slam, held at Loves.

A very special “Global Menu” will be served, working alongside a group of Asylum Seekers, with whom Loves have been running a cooking project – offering a very special supper, with dishes from Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, India and West Africa. They have written the menu as a group, to showcase recipes that they enjoy cooking, and resonating with memories from home.

NB Loves does not send out physical tickets for their shows, but instead ask you to show proof of purchase on your phone to door staff.  Your name will be on a list on the door.
