Newcastle Launch Reminder


There are two events this weekend for the launch of The Scrolls in Newcastle. You’re invited to come along to either or both.

Please note that the dinner previously planned for Friday night is not happening, however, we may informally have dinner on Darby Street straight after the Cook’s Hill launch.
