2. The Story of Cocktails
Who doesn't love a cocktail? But cocktails are more than just a drink. They represent a fascinating part of Western culture, from the first modern cocktails invented in the mid-nineteenth century, through the world of the Great Gatsby and Bertie Wooster in the Roaring Twenties, and on into our own time with the highly skill artisan bartenders who have turned cocktail mixing into a kind of performance art. ​In this new course Dr Sarah James delves into the history and practice of cocktail making, exploring the sometimes surprising history that has informed the development of these most colourful and exciting drinks. Each week we will be invited to think about a different cocktail ingredient, and uncover some of the lore and mythology surrounding the mixologist's art. Drawing on social history, film, art and literature, we will look at some of the iconic places associated with cocktail invention, from Harry's Bar in Venice to the Ritz in Paris, and meet some of the great cocktail drinkers, both fictional and real. Every week there will also be an option to make a cocktail or two (with recipes provided in advance - but supply your own ingredients) based on the theme of the week, with expert guidance from our tutor (although this is not compulsory!) No previous knowledge of cocktails is necessary. Participants must be aged 18 or over. This 6-week course is taught once a week for 1.5 hours each session. The course will be delivered live each week online via Zoom. Course starts Wednesday 4 May 2022 and runs for 6 weeks, 7.00pm to 8.30pm

3. Reading London in Angel
This five-week literature course will equip you with all the skills leading to a deeper engagement with, and understanding of, the written word. There will not be desks. No strip lighting. No white or black boards. There will be like-minded folk. A circle of higgledy-piggledy chairs. Many pot-plants and independently designed bits and bobs. And there will be wine. In this course Do you love literature, but cannot articulate why? What is it about the craft of a particular passage that struck you as beautiful; made you uncomfortable; left its invisible, indelible mark? To truly understand the art of an author's writing, there is an art to reading. The reading throughout the five weeks will concentrate on literary representations of London. Every week you will receive digital copies of the reading and a digital audio mini-lecture (playable on your phone/ computer/ tablet), so that everyone is on the same page. What will I learn? "What is the 'real' London? Is there even such a thing? Or is the city as much a product of the imagination as it is bricks and mortar?" You will learn to penetrate beneath surface discussions of character and plot. Get to grips with reading a text's aesthetics, and interrogating issues of class, politics, race, gender, and London itself. Here is what you can expect week by week: Grim and dim London Victorians, poverty, smog and grime, crime, anonymity Modernist London Technology, noise, impressionism, abstraction, 'making it new' An 'other's' London Race, immigration, identity, 'otherness', east London Radical London Anarchy, nationalism, punk, apathy, protest Our London Reading a Zadie Smith's N-W, a London novel of today What's included? All course texts and digital copies are included in the price of the course - oh and there will be wine, lots of it!
