It can be a logistical nightmare to organise transport with people dropping out or loads of people wanting to go and only letting us know the night before... Please be kind <3 we are all volunteers and it is super helpful if you book your place as soon as you can by texting 07466699812. We are not doing eventbrite so to avoid you having to pay the booking fee but it means it's more of a headache for us. Clicking 'going' on here is not booking. Spread the word & let's make this big. If you can drive a car/have a car let us know by text so we can add you to reserve drivers. Cheers :) xx
