Once again, Lashings of Ginger Beer Time are here to bring you your Recommended Tuesday Intake of internet.
Great news for both Nine Worlds (run by our very own Valentina and featuring numerous Lashers) and the Mechanisms (featuring Zim's doppleganger, Ashes O'Reilly) - both campaigns have been funded and are going ahead! The Mechanism's Indiegogo is still going, if you want to grab yourselves some space pirate themed goodies, and don't forget to pick up your ticket for the awesome Nine Worlds convention before they all get snapped up!
Lashings will be performing at the NUS Women's conference this evening, where we will be announcing the start of our own Indiegogo campaign, raising money for our Edinburgh Fringe show, Fanny Whittington. If you enjoyed our first pantomime (in which case, you have remarkably good taste), then you're sure to enjoy our radical, queer, feminist take on Dick Whittington. Make sure you get a chance to see it at the Fringe AND get your hands on lashings of treats (sorry) here.
