WOMADelaide 2017

The sprinkling of rain at the start of this year’s WOMADelaide didn’t do much to quell excitement. A rather good lineup, delicious food stalls, and friendly crowd in Botanic Park all returned to the four day world music festival.

Plan B – 2016 year planner correction

Sorry, I messed up.

Those with a keen eye will see that in the inside front cover of the 2016 Plan B diary, the dates for September & October are all off by a few days (thanks for letting us know about it Robyn).

Being a software developer, my heart sank when I realised that this is a print product and I can’t just push an update out to everyone’s diaries. So I’ve done the next best thing and created some stickers to post out to any of you that would like the corrections.

If you’ve got a printer at home and would rather print the correction yourself, here are the files to print:

* PDF of the corrected page
* PDF of the corrections

Else if you’d rather we post you a sticker, get in touch with us via email, Twitter, Facebook or phone on 08 8232 1563.

Sorry for the mistake – I’m not quite sure how that slipped past me, but pobody’s nerfect right?

Update #1 21/01/2016: Thanks to Rachael who picked up a couple more little errors. I’ve updated the corrected pages now below.
