Bad Language in November: Deborah Andrews



After a brief holiday over the road, we’re BACK where we belong, in the cosy back room of The Castle, for our final event of 2016! Come celebrate a year that has seen a raft of great headliners, wonderful new headliners, our first capital city show, and an award here or there. Everyone keeps going on about how 2016 was a great year that nothing bad happened in, right?

Deborah AndrewsTo help us celebrate we have the wonderful DEBORAH ANDREWS.
