On the move

Nomads are on the move! With thanks to Eten café for their hospitality over the last year, we now head to the Trades and Labour Club, 200 Duke Street, Sheffield, S2 5QQ. It’s the first club night next week, Tuesday 19th May, when Paul has kindly agreed to repeat last year’s very successful simul. So, if you’ve not seen the venue yet come along and have a look. If you have, come along anyway 🙂 7.45pm start.
