Hi, Thanking for letting me know ‘re Louis de Bernieres. A shame but still a fantastic programme coming up.

I downloaded the Thrum App for Android but unfortunately it’s only showing one of the events that we are all going to which is Maggie Smith. There are quite a few events showing.

However for instance Tomorrow, 25th, the following, amongst others are not showing up on the App. Sisters under skin Age of Anger The Fish Ladder Minette de Silva

Could you tell me who to contact as it’s a great idea, it’s just not showing all events yet.

Many thanks and looking forward to tomorrow,
