Pop-Up Launch – 23 April 2012

All the weeks and months of work, from chasing funding to hanging the bunting, came to fruition, as the crypt of St George The Martyr was transformed into the Dragon Café.

The smell of coffee and frankincense, dragon soup, home made flat bread and dips combined with music from the Baroque to the the contemporary, from China to Ethiopia, animation, dance and poetry! A day of contrast and surprises that came to a fitting conclusion as we were treated to the spontaneous appearance of Mental Fight Club Patron, Ben Okri, who closed the proceedings with readings of his epic poem, Mental Fight which inspired our founding in 2003.
