Songs of Summer – This Month at The Dragon Café
This Monday from 12 – 8.30 pm at The Dragon Café – Mental Fight Club – Sound & Vision
We are hugely excited to be able to share a first look at a new short film about Mental Fight Club’s work – including our flagship project The Dragon Café – and a first listen to ‘Finding Our Way’ by the Dragon Café Singers. We hope that the film captures the spirit of the Café and our dedication to creativity as a healing medium of connection and will hear about the process from filmmakers Rosa Productions. Vivien Ellis has led our Dragon Café Singers for many years and this new album is a celebration of this wonderful regular group that not only meets each Monday, but has written original pieces and performed at venues including Shakespeare’s Globe and Southwark Cathedral.
Earlier in the afternoon at 2 pm you can join Vivien for a Borough & Bankside Ballad Walk exploring the local area and its history through song. You can also dig into Southwark Local History & Archives or join Li for a Make and Curate discussion group with a focus on Cafe exhibition in the autumn.
Please Note: in August we take our annual break and so the Cafe will be closed on any Monday during that month. The last one before the break will therefore be 29th July, next returning on 2nd September.
