From ‘Free Tibet’….

“We are calling on you to join us for a day of resistance and celebration to mark the 65th anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan uprising, commemorated every 10th March by Tibetans and their supporters.

The past 12 months have seen Tibetans and their allies show what is possible when we stand together. Making headlines around the world and achieving victories. Whilst we will not stop our resistance, we must celebrate our victories.

Join us on 10 March to remember those who resist the CCP, to mark our victories over the past year, and to continue the fight for a free Tibet.

When: 10th March, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

This is a bit weird – but as someone once said to me – ‘Weird is good’…

Unearth the Dark Delights of A Gothic Cookbook

Pledge now and secure your name between the covers

Closes 5pm GMT 26th February 2024

A literary-inspired cookbook, exploring thirteen Gothic stories and their edible motifs before bringing them to life – and to your table.

Prompted by Dr Alessandra Pino’s academic studies into how food manifests itself on the pages of Gothic literature, and combining her knife-sharp analysis with Ella Buchan’s experience as a food writer and recipe developer, A Gothic Cookbook pays homage to the most appetising cuts of the genre, featuring seventy original recipes illustrated by Lee Henry.

Dracula lulls protagonist Jonathan Harker into a false sense of security with cold cuts and a spicy, smoky, peppery stew. Frankenstein’s 'monster' starts out as a benign vegetarian, while Mrs Poole’s overindulgence in Mother’s Ruin triggers Mr Rochester’s downfall in Jane Eyre – and a bitter tangerine signals a sharp, yet unheeded, warning against marriage and Manderley in Rebecca. Notice, too, how a ghostly presence craves sugar and burnt bread in Toni Morrison’s Beloved...

In this interplay between supper and the supernatural, you’ll learn to pick your desserts carefully: chocolate mousses foreshadow impending doom, yet the humble seed cake is a gesture of kindness. With a foreword from acclaimed writer, editor and academic, Leone Ross, A Gothic Cookbook is the perfect culinary companion for those of you who enjoy a slice of the macabre with your dinner.
