Actually looking out the window right now you could be forgiven for thinking it had already arrived:
One month, one hour and a few minutes from now DUSK will arrive and wend its way south and west from Aberdeen to Redruth, in a wave… of words and music.

WE HAVE OUR FUNDING! In my head I am doing Kermit-like yaay‘s with much waving of arms, but the calm exterior belies it. Must stay calm and get on with the work! No time for frivolity. Haven’t actually sent the yes, thank you stuff to ACE yet, saving that for tomorrow and a clear head.

Thanks also to Feast, Cornwall County Council, Nottingham City Council, Kelston Records and all the private individuals who have made or donated crowd funding rewards, or given us money through the crowd fund or individually, and all the organisers who have been giving their time free so far in confidence that we would get there. What a brilliant crowd of people.

Tickets will be available very shortly.

Shortlists, posters and all that jazz, also VERY soon.


Here’s a little logo to prove it.
