Our next event: HOPES & FEARS, Tuesday 13th December

Liars' League Hopes Fears Xmas - Text
Hopes! Fears! Gifts! Parties! Joy! Panic! Love! Despair!

As usual, the festive season is a positive rollercoaster of emotions and our Hopes & Fears Christmas event is going to give you one hell of a ride. We've stuffed our stocking with Hollywood noir, skull-stealing students, escapologist turkeys, Nigerian church bazaars, cats up chimneys, and quietly tragic YouTube instructional videos. And to top it off, we'll have a super bumper festive book quiz and FREE mince pies - all for a fiver!
