This weekend | 30 Nov – 2 Dec 2018

We always hope that people naturally look at our event calendar and plan appropriately, but recently we realised that, well, it’s just not the case always. Sometimes another reminder is required, so heading forward – and when time allows it – we want to inform you of a jampacked weekend of events. One such as this coming weekend. So book the following dates and events now because – as we like to keep pointing out – events don’t happen without support. Also, please note, we’re just conveying the news and are not actually responsible for the operations of these events – even though we’d be more than happy to assist. Maybe. OK, some of them not.
