Posted on: 17 Mar 2020

There's never been a better time to see what all the fuss is about at The Cloak & Dagger.


The Coronavirus may well be shutting down events left, right and centre, but the show must go on somewhere, and The Cloak & Dagger are ploughing ahead with another busy schedule.


See below for a full rundown of events at the Cheltenham Road bar this week, including a Life Drawing class, live Irish folk in celebration of St Patrick's Day, live magic and a drum & bass vinyl session.

What's on at The Cloak & Dagger.

United Models Life Drawing | Tuesday 17 March


Taking place in The Cloak & Dagger's downstairs 'Carousel Room', United Models Life Drawing is run by a collective of life models, with two members modelling each session.


Whether you're looking to sharpen your drawing skills or wanting to try out a new hobby, we'd recommend giving it a try with The Cloak & Dagger. The United Models team will be on hand to give advice and tips, and will be able to provide a small selection of basic materials. Classes run from 19:00 to 21:00 and cost £7 per person.

Bleuenn Shaw and The Acoustic Roadshow are back in Bristol on Tuesday night, playing live in celebration of St Patrick's Day. The four-piece group will be performing their full Roadshow in three sets, delivered alongside some classic Irish pub tales and, of course, trademark craic.


In these trying times, you shouldn't need much persuasion to get yourself down, let a bit loose and raise a glass to some top-notch live music.
