SALFORD VALENTINES DAY AT THE BLACK LION
 

Star date: 12th February 2012

VALENTINES DAY LOVE AT THE BLACK LION PUB

Love Your Local Arts Space
Tuesday Feb 14th from 7:30pm
Black Lion, Chapel Street

This Tuesday, the Black Lion pub is hosting a Love Your Local Arts Space Valentines night with a pop up and pay-what-you-think restaurant, the proceeds of which will go towards funding the disabled access for the pub's new cinema and theatre space.

It's just £1 per person to book a table at the increasingly popular pub and we urge everyone to spend their Valentine's smooch money in the most ethical way possible.

Full details here…


The Black Lion pub on Chapel Street is 130 years old and therefore doesn't currently have access or toilets for disabled people going upstairs to its new 120 capacity arts venue which has cinema screenings, theatre and arts happenings.

The venue is not funded and hampered by public grant money and therefore has to raise its own finance. So Future Artists, the Salford co-op that runs the pub has come up with a Love Your Local Arts Space night for Valentines.

The Black Lion's in-house chefs have come up with a special Valentine menu for veggies and meat eaters alike –which ind includes romantic delicacies like mini mushroom stroganoff and stuffed chicken breast. It's £1 per person to book a table (for two or four people) and then when the bill comes, you pay what you think the meal was worth.

All the profits from the night go towards the new disabled access facilities and everyone who goes gets their name on a sponsors' board.

"The closure of the Green Room in Manchester was the catalyst for the creation of our venue" says Mark Ashmore of Future Artists "and what we have come to realise is that the government closures of arts venues and youth clubs have also cut the venues which have disabled access. The Conservatives are blocking access to the arts, we want to change this."

Jenny Inchbald, joint owner of the Black Lion, adds: "We have a beautiful 130 year old venue, but the Victorians didn't think about universal access for all, we do, and so this valentines day, come for a meal with us, pay what you think the meal is worth, and all profits go towards our project to enable us to make upstairs a universal space for all artists."
