This month’s Canteen is a Bank Holiday special so is taking place 1 week earlier than usual on Friday 24 August. As usual it will be held at LCB Depot in the Cultural Quarter and it all kicks off from 4pm right through until 10pm.

This month the menus look among the best we’ve seen – it’s going to be a mega indulgent foodie night out, that’s for sure! The Bulldog Gin & Fizz bar will be returning and 1901 Turkey Cafe are back in the cocktail bar. So, onto the menus…
