Will there be alcohol?
Vagabond has no alcohol licence but they do great coffee, decaff and hot chocolate
Will there be food?
A small range of freshly made cafe fayre will be available at reasonable (non city) prices
Why do I need to bring a mixing bowl / plastic container?
We really are making natural body scrub, it's for you to mix & take some home
Is it really free?
Yes but there will be a voluntary collection to cover costs of body / face scrub ingredients that aren't free
