Happy New Year

Hope everyone is enjoying 2014.  I’ve set a couple of dates for the next Seasonally Effected events: 29th January and 19th February, both will be 7-9pm at the Dot Cafe, High Street, Rochester.

In the spirit of the New Year and all that, why not try something completely different?   Perhaps poets do a painting, singer-song writers could perform some stand up, film makers experiment with flower arranging or storytellers sing us a song.

I’d also be really interested to hear from anyone with ideas for making the event even more fun and interactive than it already is.

Look forward to seeing to all soon, remember to book a 10 minute spot at: seasonallyeffected@gmail.com
