Hunt and Darton Cafe is on-tour in 2014/2015. 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.
