A week today is Hen Harrier Eve when over 250 people (but the room can hold 300 so there are a few tickets available) will gather to celebrate the Hen Harrier ahead of the Hen Harrier Day rally in the Peak District the next morning (9 August, Goyt Valley).

Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of tickets you would like (£10 each, max of four tickets per email address) and the names of the ticket-holders (for fire safety reasons and because tickets will have your name on them) and I’ll be in touch about payment details. Tickets must be ordered by Monday evening and paid for by Thursday midday. No tickets available on the door on the night.
This evening is not quite sold out – but it’s very, very close, so if you are thinking of coming now is the time to reserve your tickets.
