Sound fun? You don’t have to come to all of it, pop in when you fancy. Have a break from the endless politics, recharge your battery with like-minded people, and raise funds for a fearless free art show next year!

It’s going to cost us about £130 for the event, (venue £90, license £22, bits & bobs) but it will be lovely to see all who can make it. I’ll try and sort out another social/fundraiser in LGBT history month, February.

If you can’t make it but want to buy raffle tickets or donate, get in touch. You can make a donation via Paypal to (use friends and family option to avoid fees!) If you are broke, come along and we’ll feed you and get you a drink.

Next Year!
