One thought on “December events 2014

  1. Regarding SNOWPIERCER

    Unfortunately it IS a very small venue for what is strictly speaking an English Premiere. (There’s only around 18 seats!)

    There is currently a small waiting list to whom tickets are being offered first, but there could be a last minute availability. Keep an eye on the EventBrite booking page, or email me directly on [email protected] and it’ll try and keep you informed! 🙂
