Friday 18th December 12.30-8.30pm
As we know Leicester TAG has been postponed due to Coronavirus but fear not, Fringe TAG is here to sustain us through the cold dark winter! We will have a one day event on Friday the 18th of December filled with interesting talks, discussions and debate.
The event will be run through Zoom, and at the end of November we will publish the Eventbrite link that you can use to book your place. The whole thing will be free!
We think the line up should be really interesting and we are very grateful to everyone who is taking part, especially at short notice.
