Open Source Feasts: Christmas Special @ Open Source Arts | England | United Kingdom
Dear Friends, with wide arms and a warm heart from an amazing year of creating, making, meeting, celebrating, inter-acting and supporting each other we invite you!

We are delighted to be able to give something back to everybody who has used or visited Open Source Arts this year, and we are throwing a big Christmas fiesta to do it!

You might think that hiring our space and using it for your project was to your benefit, but if you had not chosen to support us by using Open Source Arts we would have no reason for being – SO on that note, please join us this December to celebrate a wonderful year of getting stuff done…. Together!!

We will be cooking a huge feast for everybody and anybody who has had anything to do with Open source Arts on 13th December, and you are all invited – We want this to be an opportunity for everybody to feast together, get round some huge tables and get celebrating. We also want this to be an opportunity for all the incredible little creative families who use Open Source Arts to meet each other over the most common of meeting places – the dinner table, so that we all get a little bit better acquainted with the amazing human beings who make the network of great groups which are doing good stuff in Leeds RIGHT NOW!

We will cook the staples – loads of delicious roast vegetables, three different types of roast potatoes, plenty of veggie gravy and a few extra little surprises – but please bring some FOOD TO SHARE to add to the banquet and make it that little bit more special – We encourage folk to try their hand at making something rather than just buying some hummous and crisps from the supermarket – as it makes it all the more special (but if you can’t find time to make something, please bring dessert rather than a cold addition to the main!). There will be plenty of oven space for you to warm up stuff you have cooked earlier, so please do whatever you feel is a kind and conscious contribution to what is going to be a great gathering. It will be MEGA APPRECIATED!!! 🙂

There will be a cheap bar and you can support our costs in making the meal by buying a drink or two – tinnies are £2.50 and other drinks aren’t much more! Get involved!

Please arrive anytime from 4pm and enjoy a drink and a mince pie or some other festive nibble, and if you want you can help us deck our halls and bannisters with decorations-a-plenty. It’s gonna be a slow and social gathering, with plenty of time to chat and gather good merry momentum until we start our feast at 7pm, Children are very welcome too so please come young and old to celebrate with us. There will be a tots corner, the space is warm and clean and safe.

In the theme of kindly and consciously contributing to this gathering, please register to let us know you are coming – it takes a couple of clicks and is totally free but it will let us know how much food to cook and help us minimise wastage. You can still come if you haven’t registered, but doing so will help us in our organisation.

With the greatest gratitude to you all for sharing this awesome year with us, looking forward to celebrating and meeting you all here on Thursday 13th December.

From all the Team at Open Source Arts, BIG LOVE!

We have a small and busy kitchen and we cook everything in there, so whilst many of the things we cook do not have allergens in their ingredients list, there may be some traces. Most food will be vegan, apart from the turkey and the cheese.
