If you are in London, please join us this Friday 2nd July to celebrate the official launch of the Artists' Lottery Syndicate. The launch party takes place at the Artsadmin Bar & Cafe from 8pm - midnight and climaxes with a live link to the Syndicate's first ever EuroMillions draw at 11:35pm.

Come along, have a drink, meet the Syndicate members, hear all about our cunning plan to beat the cuts on arts funding by hitting the jackpot instead and witness the fate of our first attempt! Please see full details below. This'll be my first trip to the big smoke this year, so it would be great to see you there.

On a different note, I am also about to make my first trip down under and will be residing in Melbourne from 5th July - 1st August 2010. If you are that side of the world, please drop me a line as it would be fantastic to say hello while I'm in town.

Best wishes,


Artists' Lottery Syndicate
