Pop-Up Dining Room: Light Disciples & Cocktail Lab
Jun 7 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

£4 Ticket = Cocktail + Reservation (£5-£7 at the door)

Your cocktail ticket(s) will be reserved under the name and for the time you indicate below.  You can choose how many £4 cocktails you want once you click the “Pay Now” button. Payments are handled by Paypal. If some of the people in your party would prefer other types of drinks, please indicate the total number of people in the ‘reservation: name and time’ field and the no-cocktail people can pay for their drinks at the door.


Reservation: Name and Time


You can bring food in – probably from the food trucks on the square, but your own food is okay too. All cocktails and mocktails will be vegan-friendly. MinorOak will be set up as a restaurant dining room: a comfy place to sit and eat with drinks and live music.

Sneinton Market Fridays: the first Friday of every month during the warmer months, and the second one this year is coming up fast. These are great events with a fabulous vibe!

There will be food trucks and market stalls on the square, but limited seating – and not very comfy. On the first Friday in April, for the nth time, I found myself deciding against getting dinner from a food truck because I wanted to sit down and have a nice, pleasant, chatty dinner – not be stuck standing in the square, trying to juggle take-out containers, cutlery and a drink.

Here’s the solution: MinorOak is trying something new for Sneinton Market Friday in May – we’re going to be a pop-up dining room. Our front room will be set up like a pop-up restaurant dining room, and…

– MinorOak’s Cocktail Lab was a hit on Light Night, and we’re bringing it back!

– The Light Disciples have a chilled sound that’s perfect for a Friday night in Sneinton Market. They’ll be providing live music at MinorOak!

Buy cocktails in advance for £4 (£5 to £7 value). Buy multiple advance cocktails and send me a message (Dee: dee@minoroak.com), and I can reserve a table for you if you let me know your preferred time and number of people.

Cheers, and meet you at the MinorOak!

Needlework Supplies Market No.2

Needlework Supplies Market No.2 @ MinorOak

RESCUE AND REUSE

This market is for Nott’s community of needlework artists and hobbyists.

FOR BUYERS: It’s an opportunity to get ready for the crafting season with incredible bargains on the supplies you want and need. You can feel good about reusing rather than buying new. There will be pre-purchased and gently used items available, and who knows what you’ll find!

FOR SELLERS: This market will give you a chance to refocus, clean up shop and give others the opportunity to buy wool, yarn, and supplies that you no longer have a place for. Please e-mail dee@minoroak.com or use the website contact form if you’d like to be a seller.

FOR EVERYONE: This is going to be more than just a market. It will be a community event. We’ll have tables set up on Avenue A for sitting and visiting if the weather is nice, and free coffee, tea and snacks. The meeting room will be converted into a lounge.

MinorOak’s ground floor is wheelchair accessible and has a wheelchair accessible toilet.

This event is, of course, free of charge. You can let us know you’re coming on the Facebook Event. You can also join the Facebook Group if you’d like to have a say and be kept informed as we develop more events.
