Table Talk in cafes is on pause but we'll be back to support you and your cafe community as soon as we are able...

We are very sorry about the current situation cafes find themselves in because of Covid 19. We really hope that they can find ways to adapt and survive this crisis. For those who have hosted Table Talk tables up until now, we wanted to say a big thank you for supporting our mission to make Brighton and Hove friendlier.

We are pausing publicity of the Table Talk tables but we think our overall mission of encouraging friendliness and connection across the city has become even more important. We are going to use this time to plan for the next phase of the movement and also encourage people to connect in ways which don’t necessarily involve face to face contact. We’ll be in touch again once the advice around social distancing changes so that we can offer to support you to rebuild your cafe community through Table Talk.
