Black Bin Cafe dates

The dates for the Black Bin Café given in the December Pen Paper are wrong.  Dates were changed after it had gone to press.

The correct dates are 19th January, 2nd and 16th February, 1st and 15th March but by then the March Pen Paper should be out with correct and additional dates.
