If you happen to have time before/between/after a gig or whatever your plans are for this Friday 2nd June, come along to The Edwards to celebrate 4 years of Newcastle Mirage. Kian, Ryan and everyone involved in Newcastle Mirage do an amazing job and I'm so grateful that I've been able to be involved for part of their journey. Event details here.
