You can add notes to Google Calendar events if you click 'edit event', and can put the confirmed events in green, too. Without clicking through you can do only title and time.

15th is good for DIVE.

We need a date for Annabel's solo show, based around a seance. Totally separate except that she's doing both.

DIVE definitely gets a full night, I was hoping you'd ask her whether her solo show would finish in time to put things on afterwards.
