Hi All,


Please see below for information on the upcoming Tibet Festival. As this is spread over a number of days, I am not planning to organize a specific meeting place and I will be attending this on Sunday. Feel free to post your comments on the board if you are interested in meeting others at a particular time and place. Please take notice of the dates, times and places for this event as they change!
