Post by: Graham Lee on June 09, 2018, 11:06:15 PM
Seems I forgot to add these to the events page, oops.
I'm driving up tomorrow to Birmingham and we have Paul running the workshop on Monday
11th June and Patrick is coming over from Holland to run the Tuesday 12th June.

There are still spaces available at both days,
