We’ve got a new calendar – it’s over there, under the cartoon. Although it only shows the first ten events, the title will take you to the google calendar. The events calendar is not just CCK’s events (although they are on there!), but events we think might be of interest to our customers and friends – from plays and standup comedy to art and discussion groups. If you want your event to be included, get in touch!
As always, with all of these links, they are not CCK content, and do not necessarily express the views of CCK (we just think they’re interesting). Content may not be suitable for under-18s, workplace viewing, or be particularly kinky. On with the linky goodness!
