Everyone who comes to our events is coming on their own, into the unknown, and that takes a lot of courage. We know this and have been in this position ourselves so we understand and promise you a welcoming atmosphere. The event is on Friday 1st September at 7:45pm. Tickets are £10 (all profits are donated to Mary’s Meals). Just email to buy a ticket or join our mailing list to find out about future events. We’re also on Facebook at
