Now's the time to start booking transport for London and Newport - and it's like one of those dreadful algebra exam questions. If you have 4 Funoonies in Manchester, 7 Funoonies in Leeds, 2 Funoonies halfway between Leeds and Manchester, 2 Funoonies in Sheffield, 1 Funoonie in Pontefract, and 1 Funoonie in Newcastle, plus two shamadans taking up a seat each, and a shisha, and a table, and all the flags of North Africa, the Middle East, and one or two other places, and several changes of costumes - how big does your van need to be and where should it set off from?!? (Probably the biggest headache of the tour so far!)

Funny month, November! We were supposed to be hosting shows in Birmingham and Salford, but these aren't happening now. The Birmingham venue realised at the last minute that they'd double-booked events in their big-and-little theatres and didn't have enough changing rooms to go around. We've been unable to get a new date from them, and we can't find another small theatre with a suitable date before Christmas. And the Salford venue is being refurbished so they're going to give us another date next year. All fired up after Leeds, and now no where to go :(
