Okasional Cafe update May 2001

Like a Ray of Sunshine Splitting Through the Manchester Smog

The Okasional Cafe is back and it needs you! We have been up and running at 60 Charles St. (just off Oxford Rd, opposite the BBC) for 5 weeks and new people are always welcome to help with anything from putting on workshops or gigs, to recycling or cooking. The cafe was in court on May 2nd, lots of people turned up as defendants and the judge told the licensees of the building they didn't have a legal right to occupation and threw out the case. He also awarded £150 costs to the cafe! We don't know how long this autonomous space will last, so get yourselves down there while you still can. Following a brilliant opening night party there have been film and poetry nights, capoiera workshops, jam nights, punk and folk gigs, a reggae night and much more. There's always a vegan meal (organic when possible) on Wednesday evenings and often food at other times too.

Opening times and days vary so phone to check we're open on 07753 606723

[capoiera - "An African-Brazilian martial arts/dance form of expression and movement"]
