As Torriano is a small venue we will initially be limiting the audience to around 20. Please sign up via Eventbrite for the reading(s) that you are planning to attend. There is an option to either pay via Eventbrite or to pay in cash on the door. If you are planning to pay on the door please still sign up so we know that you are planning to attend.
Despite the ongoing challenges, I’m really looking forward to seeing you soon.
