The Forest Cafe

  • 19133047849_db0f7dd794_b

Forest Cafe is a free arts and events space disguised as a laid back vegetarian cafe. Collectively owned and community run, its staffed largely by volunteers.
With its reclaimed/home-made quirky furnishings and decor, the place has a bohemian atmosphere that leaves you with a warm feeling of chaos. Expect wooly jumpers, dreadlocks, artists, students, chai tea and ti-chi, weird and wonderful haphazard happenings, big burritos, a very international crowd and green anarchist undercurrents. And overcurrants ( I’m not sure that’s an actual word. If it were, I imagine it would be more fully described in the dictionary under “over-caking”. )

The extensive “copyleft” music collection is all from local or touring artists who have performed there.

There is also an exchange programme where international volunteers come to work on placement.

Anyone is free to hold an event there although unfortunately there are noise restrictions now which make most music events impossible.

Forest is affiliated with the Forest Centre Plus arts space ( closing down soon but hopefully new studio space will emerge ).
