05Jun09

Date: 23 July 2009
Time: 7.00pm – 10.00pm
Location: Warehouse Cafe, 54-57 Allison Street, Birmingham

The Birmingham Fems are organising a fundraiser to support their Reclaim the Night event later in the year.

Come to this special night at the Warehouse Cafe to help raise funds for Birmingham’s own Reclaim the Night event.

Tickets will be on sale from Mid June. If you want to be kept up to date on where and when to buy them, join this event as ‘attending’ and we will keep you posted.

We will be having some delicious food and excellent entertainment. Confirmed entertainment includes an acoustic set by Kate Finch (‘an angry women with a down tuned guitar’), poetry by Mary Sheard, plus guests and raffle. (Watch this space for news of raffle prizes.)

Menu as follows:

Starter:
Summer Mezze (inc. Mediterranean crispbread, aubergine dip, butterbean and basil dip, sun-blush tomatoes, house marinated olives, artichoke hearts)

Choice of mains:
Thai green summer vegetable curry, lime-infused rice, crispy fried noodle
Savoury cheesecake with English goat’s cheese and baby spinach on nut base, Mediterranean potato salad, red pepper jam and rocket pesto (contains nuts)
Hand made sun dried tomato and brown lentil sausages, Savoy cabbage and leek colcannon, wilted cherry tomatoes, gravy

Choice of Desserts:
Lime and Ginger cheesecake with lemongrass syrup or
Hot and sticky chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream

Enjoy all this whilst knowing that you are raising money for Reclaim the Night Birmingham. Even though Reclaim the Night marches have been going on since the 1970’s, women still dont feel safe on the streets at night and the conviction rate for rape is still incredibly low. We want to bring this campaign against violence to Birmingham this autumn.
