In many ways I have started to think about this as a world music kids love disco, there is going to be all sorts of music, activities and entertainment that everybody can relax and dance to.  tickets are on sale now at the lantern theatre website

it would be really helpful if people could book tickets in advance and offer as much as they can afford, if you are feeling flush, buy some tickets for friends.  The Lantern only has a capacity for 100 so we would like to sell as many tickets in advance as possible, if you can’t make it please consider donating to Fatamouta’s legal fund.
