THE BIG SNUFF C O M E B A C K

Sniffing snuff is an ancient art, the original way to take tobacco. For thousands of years, American Indians have known the secret pleasure of tobacco in its oldest form. Some people think snuff went out with the English fops. But snuff has staying power. Millions of people men and women in all walks of life across the world - still enjoy a pinch. Let’s be honest. Today, people don’t like smokers. So the original way of enjoying tobacco is making a big comeback. Today, Snuff is there to be sniffed. It’s not to be sneezed at.

Please share our drive and determination to get her singing again so we can celebrate with a good old East (Dulwich) end Knees Up Mother Brown. Any donations will be gratefully received.
