Included in your ticket is a wee parcel of delights that will be sent direct to your door including full programme, prize draw details, and a few wee gifts to help us feel connected in these strange strange times (available for everyone who books by 17th January but will keep posting after this date until we run out...

The event is part of a fundraising drive for Holyrood elections in May, and a chance to catch up and meet members and friends across Edinburgh, Lothians, and beyond.
We're looking forward to welcoming you on the 23rd...
