ATTENTION: ALL NAOMI SMALLS TICKET HOLDERS.

Unfortunately, Naomi Smalls has had a problem obtaining a visa to be able to travel to the UK today, and has needed to postpone her arranged performance at The Library until Sunday 24th July.

We cannot apologise enough. We wanted the event to go ahead tomorrow and had everything in place to do so, but this is something we have had no control over, and I hope you are all able to understand.

Everyone will have the opportunity to transfer their tickets to Sunday 24th July. Alternatively, if you are unable to make it on that day, the cost of your ticket will be fully refunded to you.

Everyone will receive an email from Skiddle.com very shortly, which will contain a link to where you will be able to apply for a refund.

Again, we are so sorry this has happened. We are all really disappointed, but we will look forward to next Sunday, and I hope you will all be able to join us then.

You asked for it and we listened.

Many of you said you love the intimacy of Bandit, Mugger and Thief. Therefore. we have decided to move Naomi Smalls from Cruz 101 to Bandit, Mugger and Thief on Sunday 17th July.

Same time, just a different location.

We can't wait to see you all this Sunday! πŸ“š

Welcome to The Library, Manchester's friendliest drag showcase. We read books, not people. Since we opened The Library, almost a year ago, we've always wanted to do things a little bit differently. We provide quality entertainment, a friendly atmosphere, value for money and an overall fabulous experience. We hope you can join us sometime.
