Blether Friendship Club
Weekly Mondays, 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th March, 6-8pm
After a visit to the Belfast Friendship Club, we have been inspired to start a similar club in Glasgow: Blether Friendship Club.
The idea of this is simple – to provide a safe space for people of different backgrounds and nationalities to meet each other.
We are a diverse group of people with a lot in common, and so Blether Friendship Club will be a space for people who are new to the city, and people who have always lived here, to:
We come from many walks of life and many countries – including Scotland. Some of us are in work, looking for work or supporting family elsewhere. We may be retired, or studying, or unable to work, perhaps because we are seeking sanctuary. We may be distant from our original ‘homes’ and families and learning English as a 2nd/3rd/4th/5th language, as well as making another life here.
We create safe space for building friendships but we are not a dating agency. So, the only two ‘rules’, while maintaining the space generally as a safe space, are no flirting and no recruiting for religious or political purposes.
When you arrive you will be
If you want to find out more about Blether, why not come along to our first gathering, on Monday 13th February at 6pm at The Project Café, or on any Monday after that.
We’d be grateful if you would advertise this wherever relevant. If you’d like more information, please get in touch – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Ronnie on 07340866978

We have visited the Belfast Friendship Club and are very grateful for their support of Blether, and for the seven years’ experience they have of running such a club which they are sharing with us as we start something similar – with a tartan slant.
Hope to see you there.

An Iraqi Kitchen
Saturday 18th March, 7pm
Join Küche in collaboration with Ruzbowl as we explore an Iraqi kitchen; the landscape, the stories, the groceries, the technique, the equipment and the flavour of a country that often reaches our newspaper headlines but never our dinner table.
This event is an opportunity for diners to discover an incredibly distinctive and flavoursome cuisine, which many people know little about.
Included in your ticket:
A warm welcome, 3 courses, 2 drinks, an introduction from the chef and a shared table!
Tickets cost £20, please book here.
Uncovered Artistry Presents:
Thursday 23rd March, 6-8pm
In the second of a series of fundraiser events, hosted by Uncovered Artistry in celebration of creativity, we move to the joys of literature! We welcome a range of talented writers and poets to the Project Café to read their own work in an evening dedicated to literature, but held in support of the survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. Our readers are at various stages in their careers, from a multi-published Eric Gregory Award winner to talented Creative Writing students that you shouldn’t miss embarking upon their journeys. We welcome four readers from the local Glasgow scene, Colin Herd, David Linklater, AK Thaysen and Kirsty Dunlop, as well as our guest poet, John Birtwhistle.
All money made from tickets will go straight to Uncovered Artistry, which is a non-profit that buys and sells the hand-made art, craft and jewellery made by the survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. Uncovered Artistry operates under the belief that creativity and the Arts can be empowering and healing processes. They are currently raising funds in order to continue to directly support the creative work of abuse survivors.
