We celebrated our 10-year anniversary with an inaugural UK tour in Sept/Oct. The tour covered fifteen dates including Reading, Bristol, London (four), Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Portsmouth, Brighton (two), Newcastle, Manchester and Nottingham. Check out the tour video here!
It was a huge undertaking and we needed your help. Income from ticket sales would cover venue hire and most of our travel. However it wouldn’t cover flyers, posters, adverts, equipment hire and accommodation.
We are good at saving on costs so we stuffed ourselves into as few vehicles as possible, slept on friends’ floors, brought home-made food and borrowed equipment. Essentially for two months we shared everything – cars, beds, food and girlfriends. Maybe not girlfriends.
Money is tight for everyone so we knew it was cheeky of us to expect you to rummage around in your pocket, wallet, purse or safety deposit box. Therefore we put together some great perks for your enjoyment.
THANK YOU to everyone who helped us achieve our £2000 goal. WE DID IT!!!
