So there ya go, some history there, and he’ll be performing 2 x 1 hour sets just for you.
Please read the following carefully
The event will be spread over 2 venues, ‘Hifi’ the usual venue, from 1pm til’ 8pm, and then will transfer across to ‘HiFi’s’ sister venue ‘Wire’, which is a 2 minute walk from ‘Hifi’ opposite the ‘Corn Exchange’, from 8pm-2am.
‘Wire’ is an excellent venue very similar to ‘Hifi’ in size and décor, it has been carefully chosen and will complement the event perfectly.
You have the choice to go to either one or the other, or both venues.
If you just want to attend the day event at ‘Hifi’, you can pay on the door £6
If you just want to attend the night event at ‘Wire’, you can also pay on the door £6
If you want to attend both events for the full 13 hours, you can purchase a ticket

There will be a £1 postage charge for tickets, BUT that is for as many tickets as you want,
so 1 ticket £1 postage, 10 tickets £1 postage, there is NO BOOKING FEE on tickets, and tickets will be posted 1st class.
Payment through ‘Paypal’
You do not need a ‘Paypal’ account to pay using ‘Paypal’,

So there yer go! A little complicated, but it’s gonna be well worth it believe me, this event will be a milestone for the ‘Leeds Central’ and if it all goes well, we have to option to do 3 or 4 a year!!
