We did Cardiff! Met some great people, Nika practiced her sharp-shooting (long story, see pic), met up with fellow Beano cartoonist Lew Stringer (see pic) and enjoyed another Showmasters weekend, thanks Cassandra!
Apologies to anyone expecting us to be at the MCM show in Liverpool last weekend (I know some were). We asked to be there, we offered our services free (no transport, no accommodation, we only live half a mile from the venue) but we never got an answer. Our experience at MCM and other shows in the past tell us that even when people attending don't know in advance we'll be there, we always end up with a long queue of excited happy Beano readers of all ages who are thrilled to see us.
Next on our tour is Exeter in June, (though we're negotiating for something in April and May, stay tuned) Glasgow in July, Southport in September, York in October and again we're negotiating for something in November- maybe two events, one in Britain, one in Greece! And we still hope to do a London show this year. We've been asked to do London a lot and I think I've convinced Nika by taking her to a splendid quiet pub there a few weeks ago. Of course, I'm not telling you which one (but it has Quiz Night Tuesdays if you want to filter results. No, not the King's Head, Crouch End. No, not The Plough in Bloomsbury. No, not The George, look, stop guessing, I'm not saying.)
