Wow, another busy week here at the QUARTER, it’s hard to keep up!

To be or not to be…

We held our Tarot Night with Hazel and the team from Rainbow Therapy and Healing. These evenings are always very popular, so why not get yourselves booked in for the next one? As part of your time with us, a reader will spend 20 minutes with each table, so get some friends together and enjoy good food and drinks and immerse yourselves in the tarot experience. The next evening will be held on Wednesday 16th October. Booking is essential and tickets can be purchased through our website: https://www.thequartercafe.co.uk/product-category/tarot-nights/

The sound of music…

The weekend saw us once again buzzing with activity as we enjoyed the sounds of our amazing live music acts, from the ever popular Robert Perry (see video https://www.facebook.com/thequarterhanley/videos/920101258360870/ – he always gets the crowd singing along!) to the lovely singer/songwriter Sheena Bratt and guitarist Dan Machin. Our resident pianist Rebecca Louise accompanied another relaxing Saturday lunchtime. We are always on the lookout for new artists, so get in touch if you’re looking for a gig. Our live music nights are always fully booked, so remember to call and reserve a table – don’t be left disappointed!

 

 

 

 

 Mingling with the stars

Our owner Josef was pleased to be invited to an exclusive drinks reception by Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce to celebrate the British Ceramics Biennial taking place across the city. The event took place at Spode Works, at which he enjoyed a lovely evening of networking with like-minded business people from across the city. He heard from a range of leading speakers from the ceramics industry, the key speaker being the queen of Stoke-on-Trent pottery herself Emma Bridgewater!

    

On the radio…

Did you catch Josef on BBC Radio Stoke on Tuesday? He was one of Louise Stones’ Lunchtimers, chatting on her afternoon show about all things Nigel Havers, mispronunciation and free time (what’s that again?). Radio Stoke is fantastic for supporting local businesses and it was a real treat to be on the show. Catch him on iplayer (https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p07n12vd) or next month when he’s back in the studio with Lou.

Cake, coffee, charity

Our charity support so far this month includes vouchers to Hartshill Cricket Club who are holding a Fashion Show in aid of Douglas Macmillan. Our own little Quarters went along to a Macmillan Coffee Morning with some sweet treats to help raise money for this great cause.

   

In the Garden Room…

We love supporting new businesses and providing a platform for their innovations and entrepreneurial ambition. Our Garden Room is a well utilised space, not just for parties and dining but also workshops, meetings, networking and community groups. This month we welcome MediPainting on the 15th October (booking at cbfmedipainting@gmail.com) and a brand new Health and Wellness event taking place on the 22nd October. If you would like more information about the space we can provide, please get in touch via our website.

New look Tapas…

Tapas Thursdays have a new look menu and brand new music line-up. Our very popular Tapas Night takes place once a week and for this one day, we change our menu to reflect this delicious and casual style of dining. Tapas is the perfect way to try more than one item at a time. Do you ever read a menu and think ‘I wish I could just try a few of the starters without people thinking I’m weird?’ Well, with Tapas, you can do just that. The portions are designed to be smaller than usual so that you can try a few at once. Share with friends and taste a sample of even more, or savour them all for yourself. There really are no rules, other than to enjoy! We only serve from this menu and if you’ve not had Tapas before, then it’s a must try night here at the QUARTER.

That’s all for now. Don’t forget to get booked in for our live music nights, tapas, or whatever takes your fancy. We are always busy and we don’t want any of our customers to be disappointed. Call now while it’s on your mind! See you all soon…
