Story Cities Launch Party Tomorrow

Very excited about the launch party tomorrow for Story Cities… Kam has been busy decorating the Stephen Lawrence Gallery

and I’m currently baking a cake that will NOT be big enough for 100+ people.

There are 20 tickets left for this free event, so if you were dithering, get a move on.

I forsee lots of selfies in front of that wall…

And we have lots of readings and refreshments, in fact we have so much to get through that you really need to be on time!
