Cabaret Night!!

Hello!cabaret night

It’s been a while, so much has happened. Lots of news. We have changed, you have changed, everyone has changed. We are know longer the people we were. But that sounds all very serious. Speed Dating was a great success, and hopefully some people have managed to find the loove of their life, or at the very least a shag.

But unfortunately upon arriving back at the house the team had found their laptops to have been stolen. Hence the lack of updates for a while. Lewys had his mac cruelly taken from him, but he has insurience so he should be fine. And Dan had his laptop and half of his laptop cable stolen. Fortunately his Dad was looking for an excuse to get a new laptop anyway, so Dan now has his old one. Which quote unquote is ‘better and more powerful than your one anyway’. So that’s that.

Jack is fine, as his laptop wasn’t at home. Bastard.

 

What else has happened?!?! Lots Jacks been lost down a well, and the guys haven’t been able to watch porn for nearly two weeks, as well as having their music choice limited to the phones and radio now that the option of spotify has gone. The heroes have had to undergo NLL (No Laptop Living) and have struggled/found it refreshing.

We’re also back on the 18th of April at St.Martins Coffee with a Caberat night, featuring a band, burlesque, stand up comedy as well as us hosting and being silly. It’s on Good Friday (was that a poor marketing decsion? Come and find out) and you can tickets for this and our other events here

Full line up to be announced next week! We’ve also made another advert/trailer/video for it watch here
