Success Monologues

We are living in a world of 'not enough' where self-limiting beliefs are not only common, but pretty much a given. But what if we flipped it on its head?

The Success Monologues brings together a group of brilliant women to speak about their limiting self-beliefs, the memories that made them, and how they've redefined what it means to ‘be a success'.

Inspired by new Pan Macmillan novel, The Charmed Life of Alex Moore by Molly Flatt, this will be an evening of inspiring stories, advice, and conversations focusing on what it takes to be your true self in an ever pressurized world.

The panel takes place at Pot Kettle Black on the 26 February, more information on the line-up can be found here

A Kebab worth sitting down for

Synonymous with the end of night crawl, the humble kebab has undergone a bit of makeover thanks to the Northern Quarter’s latest foodie offering Bab.

Located on Lever Street, what we’re essentially dealing with here is a posh/pimped-up kebab and plenty of meze - we couldn’t be happier.

We’ve already got our eyes on the Lamb Adana, replete with feta labneh, radicchio and topped of with a dash of pomegranate.

Add to that a side of Greek fries for good measure, and unlike those ‘eventful’ night out escapades, Bab looks sets to be a kebab to remember.
