Details of how to sign up to read at the event, and to join the audience will be announced as soon as possible.

Feel free to wear festive gear (or not!) and to bring a drink or two to the screen. The event will last for 90 minutes, after which those who wish can continue chatting on Zoom, bridging the gap……
