Greetings elvish ones and elvis ones!
Big thanks to all of you who made the Grassroots Equinox Party so much fun - all of the acts put on superb performances, eclectic ballroom and deep roots had downstairs rocking, and the vibe was looverly! Now looking forward to the Libra Party on 7th October, with Tarantism making a return visit to the boro as part of a kick-a*s line-up!
Our shout outs also go to the Twit Twoo bods (you may remember them as Sam and Nikki , residing in the psychedelically decorated tent near the food stalls at Grassroots this summer). Twit Twoo is a magazine of stuff for people of all ages, full of wisdom and thoughtful word that make you grin. Check out their website at www.twittwoo.com where you will also be able to find details of the magazine.
