What's in Store

It's your chance to get into the mind of Mark Powell in an intimate, interactive environment. There will be a live DJ, delicious refreshments and free giveaways. How does he choose his subjects? Why biro? What music does he draw to? Come and find the answers to your questions.

Official Print Release 

There will also be an official print release launching on the day at a super special pre-release price. Mark will dedicate on the day of this event. Don't miss it.
