PREVIOUS TOUR LOCATIONS

March 2014 – saw the tour kick off in style with our pop-up in Brighton as part of this year’s hub for SICK! Festival and supported by The Basement. Guest waiters, theme days and hosted talks approached the core themes of the festival (Death, Mental illness, Aging and Adolescence) collaborating with medical practitioners, academics, artists and local groups. Guest waiters included artists: Brian Lobel, Figs in Wigs, Odd Comic and Scottee.

May 2014 – we opened the second of our pop-up cafe’s in Cambridge to overwhelming press and local support! Our partners on this leg of the tour were the lovely Eat Cambridge and Cambridge Junction. We spent all four weeks of the pop-up being inundated with customers.
