We're delighted to announce that our seasonal soiree, Light & Dark on Tuesday 13th December (click for link to Facebook event) will take place in the elegantly refurbished Empire Bar at The Lamb pub in Bloomsbury - a venue which has many happy associations for us, since it's where the very first Liars' League was held, waaay back in 2007. (Address details at bottom of page).
This year we've got it all: elves, Secret Santa, obscene Christmas lights, Ebenezer Scrooge, estranged relatives and a really, REALLY awkward Christmas dinner, so let trumpets sound, gnomes laugh and little drummer boys drum! Our six Christmas crackers are:
WINNING STORIES FOR LIGHT & DARK
The Gift by Michael Mann *NEW AUTHOR*, read by Jim Cogan
Winter Sun by Miranda Gold *NEW AUTHOR*, read by Lois Tucker
Christmas Star by Sherry Morris, read by Josie Charles
Christmas with the In-Laws by Quintin Forrest
Tigg Montague's Ponzi Pyramid Scheme by Liam Hogan, read by Clive Greenwood
The Gospel According to St Hamleys the Elf by Alan Graham, read by Paul Clarke
We'll be there, the actors and authors will be there, and the Ghost of Christmas Present(s) has RSVP'd - but if you want to make sure YOU will get in on the night we are, for the first time, taking ticket bookings (and payments) in advance. This is because the Lamb can only take 50 people tops in its upstairs bar, bijou and cosy as it is, so we have to limit the numbers.
Want in on the fun? Great! To book your ticket please send £5 via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org, and mark your payment XMAS plus your name. (You can also click the yellow Donate button to the right of this page - either way is fine). If you pay more we'll book the relevant number of tickets: £10 buys 2, £15 buys 3 and so on. Price includes a programme, all the mince pies you can scoff, and entry to our super bumper infamous festive book quiz (which in the spirit of seasonal excess features TEN fabulous festive books to win).
Tickets are STRICTLY LIMITED to a maximum of 50 for the Christmas event so please book early! UPDATE: 2/3 of the tickets have gone already - buy buy buy!
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start and if there are any tickets left they'll be £5 cash on the door. If you've booked tickets in advance please ensure you arrive by 7.30 as otherwise we may give your place to people on the waiting list/in the queue.
We're really looking forward to this one, so come along and jingle our bells. Those details in full:
