This unusual one-off night at the Castle Hotel features a talk from two ‘ambassadors’ for ExInked. This art and ecology project saw 100 original drawings of of endangered British species tattooed on to 100 volunteers. These volunteers, or ambassadors, took part in a three-day performance to highlight the plight of threatened or rare birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, plants and fungi from around the UK. ExInked was launched in November 2009 as a collaboration between tattooists Ink Vs Steel and photographers Anatomy Projects.

Manchester-based singer-songwriter Sukh will be playing music from his debut album Kings at the event.
