ABCtales Fifth Birthday Event 2nd February: Come on, it's a celebration!


we're looking forward to the ABCtales event Fifth Birthday Event of 2nd February being a wonderful celebration of all of the things that have made ABCtales such a diverse and interesting thing to be involved with over the years.

To do this we need YOUR help: Firstly we'd love to see as many of you there as possible, whether you're an old face we haven't seen for a while or a fresh new lamb yet to gambol in the ABCtales paddock.

Secondly, we'd love this event to benefit from a range of readings from ABCtales faces old and new. If you've been around a while but never read now's your chance! If you've never read anywhere, what a place to start! Five to ten minutes in front of a friendly and appreciate audience then back to your seat for an evening of adulation and feeling like you've achieved something.

Every event worth it's salt needs a bombastic intro, and below to convince you if you haven't already been, is the ABCtales 2nd of November Birthday Bash Bombastic Intro:
