THURSDAY 11th JULY - Va-va-VAMP NIGHT
BYOBCelebrating all things camp and vamp, we present a silent film screening of 'Pandora's Box', the controversial erotic classic that tells of lusty showgirl Lulu's fiery fall from grace, ruining lovers both male and female before her own fateful encounter with Jack the Ripper in a seedy London back-alley. Oozing the doomed decadence of Weimar Germany and celebrated for the extraordinary magnetism of its star Louise Brooks, the original sinful siren of Hollywood, 'Pandora's Box' is a milestone of menacing but mesmerising moodiness which also features the first cinematic representation of lesbianism. With a musical background of the classic husky torch songs of Marlene Dietrich, this is a night for breaking out your feather boas, painting on your scarlet lips and nails and glamming it up! Note: normally dressed customers in search of caffeinated beverages are also welcome.
FRIDAY 12th JULY - WINDY'S WORD NIGHT
Welcoming the young performers of this city to Windy's for a night of variety in spoken word, there'll be manic monologues, poetic outbursts and unexpected moments of drama. So come down to laugh, listen and let your hair down.
SATURDAY 13th JULY - JOHNNY RAYGE NIGHT
Lady W's favourite songster is celebrating the return of his voice after singing himself hoarse to devoted fans in Glastonbury over the last weeks. He'll be bringing his own mellow musical stylings, poetic lyrics and wordly wisdom to a night of banter and balladry. Drop in and chill out!
FRIDAY 19th JULY - AOIFE NicCANNA & BRENDAN McCARTHY
The respected Near FM radio presenter and DJ Aoife NicCanna will be dropping in to Lady W's Culture Cafe to spin a few tunes, joined by her very special guest Brendan McCarthy all the way from Calcutta. McCarthy, a veteran social activist and poet, will be sharing some of his verses that are bound to give you food for thought, just as we at Lady W's are bound to give you food for munching.
Check out Aoife's exploration of the Irish dance scene, 'Folklore from the Dancefloor'.

So come down to Lady W's Culture Cafe for a Saturday night session, and listen to the lady lull you and laugh with you at all life's ups and downs.
