Word of mouth is vital to shows like ours and anything that helps get new faces through the door (and keeps old ones coming back) is greatly appreciated. Without people turning up, there will be no shows. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or sign up to the newsletter here.

Merry Christmas to you all, see you in 2017?
