Share Coffee, Culture and Conversation in the Eighteenth Century

Event Details

An evening of coffee and conversation, exploring the role and representation of the eighteenth-century coffee house…

 Inspired by the work of Sheffield’s Twin Café and the release of ‘The Coffee House’ (a short film by Adam James Smith, Gemma Thorpe and the University of Sheffield’s Arts Enterprise), this charitable event will present a series of exciting papers and dramatic readings which trace the perennial relationship between coffee and community back to coffee houses and literature of the eighteenth century. Readings will approach the coffee house from an exciting range of perspectives, surveying contemporary eighteenth-century accounts (including the story of a murder in a London coffee house!), poetry, print and more. The event will also host the first public screening of ‘The Coffee House’ film.

 

£3 on the door, with all proceeds going to:

393 Youth Club - Open access youth club in Hillsborough 

Roundabout - Homeless charity for young people

Los Angelitos - Music project for young people in Esteli
