So, last night the tour started in London at the Macbeth, the place was completely packed out, all the bands ruled and the atmosphere was incredible.
Thanks so much to Bryony, Mark at the Macbeth, Patrick the soundman, Family Outing (especially for the food!) and Shopping. All super humans.

“As a Support Assistant in Secondary Education working specifically with special needs students I was excited and curious about what tonight would bring. I’m not gonna make any statements or say any generic bullshit here, but music and the arts is often taken away (or at least given limited access) from students I work with and I’m sure across the board too. This is because the authority fail to see these subjects as a core part of their education. Music and the arts use far more multi-sensory and kinesthetic learning than any other subject taught in school. Despite most SEN students thriving on these way of learning. Tonight gave a massive middle finger to the authority for not allowing gifted and talented SEN students to show their full potential in all practical subjects. I hope more amazing events like this continue to promote and support performers with disabilities. All the bands kicked ass!”
