The First Teeside Convention: This September!
Up here in the North East, we have one convention, which is the Peterlee show in March. Now, suddenly, we have one in September as well. Brilliant!
Mark Bester is organising a show in Teeside, with Ian Richardson, and it looks like it will be really cool. It’ll be another small show, which rocks. Smaller shows are really great, especially near a time when the one and only London Tattoo Convention is also happening (so we can afford to go to both!).
From Mark’s facebook page:
