Plastic Figurines: Press Round-up 21/04/2015

After our first two weeks out on tour with Plastic Figurines, in Liverpool and London, it’s fair to say it’s gone down well: sold-out performances, rave reviews and great audience feedback. We’ve had a blast so far!

We’re now heading to venues all across the UK – from Hemel Hempstead to Mold in Wales – over the next four weeks. Check out tour venues below and book your tickets!
