Please keep an eye on our website for the most current information and to see which events are affected by this situation.

    This is not a place for food!

    What a waste! It’s a shame so much perfectly good food gets tossed in the bin.

    This is why we have guest groups volunteering at ACU to combat this problem and feed the people who are hungry.

    Will you look at those colours?

    ACU is not only a place to party, it’s a place of art!

    That is why, every month, we invite a new artist to exhibit their work in our bar.

    This month’s artist is:

    Yvo Jolie
