Register at Eventbrite. A Zoom link will be emailed to attendees on the evening of the event.

 

Tickets are free or pay-what-you-want: restrictions on in-person events due to COVID-19 has meant THE WHITE REVIEW has lost a significant income stream this year. We traditionally sell copies of the magazine, and drinks, at live events, while keeping tickets free. As a registered charity and small arts organisation, we are now offering both free and pay-what-you-want tickets to our online events, in the hope that our supporters will donate a small amount. This goes directly back into the organisation, into the print magazine, free online content, and future events.
