This will be followed by a variety of spicy meat dishes served with naan breads, rice and vegetable dishes like onion bhajis. If you are a vegetarian or have special dietary needs, you will need to let us know when you book and we will pass this onto the restaurant. There will be a cash bar for you to buy your drinks for the evening. To book please email contact@soulscape.org.uk and you will then be sent information for advance payment. Once we reach 50 tickets we can reserve the whole restaurant, so let's get booking!  If you are planning to go as a group, please book together so we know where to seat you. We don't have sufficient bookings at the moment to make this event happen so, if you are intending to come, but haven't told us, please could let us know by Friday 23rd February.
