James Shaw and Squint Opera

Our apologies: this event has been cancelled. We hope to be able to reschedule it for another time in the future. ¬†This Thursday 29th January: a coming event that I’m sure you’ll be keen to come along to. ¬†James Shaw, formerly of Wellington and now working with Squint Opera in London, is in town long enough for us to convince him to give a talk. The work he has been doing with Squint is fantastic, especially on the evocation of a drowned London – well worth a look. Venue to be confirmed.
