Bus Regulation: The Musical

Dear friends,

It's been two and a half years since my last newsletter. Time has flown.

We now have GDPR! So first of all, I'd like to invite you to unsubscribe from this list if you no longer wish to be on it. (Please scroll down and hit the 'unsubscribe' button at the bottom of this email for secure, instantaneous and permanent removal of your data from this list).

For over a year I've been hiding away in my flat in Glasgow writing a book, The Glasgow Effect: A Tale of Class, Capitalism & Carbon Footprint, which will be out in November (see details and event dates below).

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know about my new performance/event, Bus Regulation: The Musical, which will be premiering at Manchester Art Gallery this Saturday at 2pm and 3pm.

I am very excited about this project, which I have been developing over the summer in collaboration with the Better Buses for Greater Manchester campaign. Tickets are FREE and it would be great to see you there!

I'd also love to tour the show to Glasgow next year in collaboration with the Get Glasgow Moving campaign, so if you know of any venues/festivals that might be interested in working with me on it, please get in touch.

I'll send further details about the book next month. If you don't want to hear any more from me however, as I said, please do unsubscribe!

Best wishes,


The Glasgow Effect: A Tale of Class, Capitalism & Carbon Footprint
