Roses vs. Trees

"Roses 6" Fantin Latour Henri and "Sunfire Forest Painting" Vangobot.

A Valentine's alternative evening out: Escape the Cheese tomorrow night at Urban Coffee Company and raise money for Northfield Eco-centre.

Rach who's organising the event says "The basic concept of the event is that it's a night avoiding all the tackiness and clichés of Valentines. NOT a singles event, more a laid back party with some entertainment (music, spoken word, some games) and raising money for Northfield Eco-Centre's community orchard project, which aims to plant 1,400 trees in south Birmingham in the next two years. "

There'll be live music and a raffle- that's where we come in. Mustard Yellow Photography has donated a photoshoot as a raffle prize.

Tickets are £2 and need to be booked in advance by emailing You can get all the details on their Facebook event.
