Swallows isn’t the only mischief I’ve been up to … there’s also the small matter of this umm … festival … that I orgnanise in June. You might wish to come along to one of the events listed below perhaps?
HER MAJESTY’S FAVOURITE REALLY GREAT GRAPHICAL FESTIVAL 2015
Well well well. What have we here!?
A Festival program? We… are… amused.
Her Maj would like you all to know that Her Festival is dedicated to gender diversity in programming and in its chaotic organisational structures (an Empire is an organic beast).
