Thanks to everyone who braved the conditions to come out and see the show in Cheltenham last night. It was very much appreciated by Elkie and the band. As some of you are aware, Elkie fell yesterday before the show and has hurt her hand and wrist badly.

Owing to this, she will not be appearing at Jewish Book Week tomorrow. We apologies for any disappointment this may cause.
Courtesy of Epsom Playhouse; we have a pair of tickets for Elkie's show there on 25th January up for grabs. If you would like to go, then please email email@example.com with your name, address and phone number and we will notify you next week if you have been the lucky winner!

ELKIE'S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 14/12/12
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you who have been so supportive yet again this year. It has been a long and taxing, but ultimately very rewarding year. The release of my book in the summer was a big thing for me and the overwhelming positive feedback has been so reassuring, I was very touched by your response to it and so glad to hear you have been enjoying the read. Thanks to those of you who were able
to make the book launch in Mayfair, that was a very enjoyable event and so nice to meet some of you.
The tour has yet again been great fun and we have have had a blast. My apologies to any of you that have been inconvenienced by the cancellations this year. I think with the concert schedule, the book promo and everything else I got a little run down and consequently had a few nasty bouts of laryngitis. I am so very much looking forward to a relax over Christmas and some walking along the beach.
I wish you all a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year and am very excited at the prospect of hitting the road again in January!
