Dolly Sen – spanking reality arse since 2000
We are pleased to announce that this year we have Dolly Sen on the line up for the People Like Us Festival! Whoop whoop! Super excited as ever since we started conversations with Dolly we have been captured by her beautiful spirit and her captivating sense of humour. The session we have in store for you will be one not too miss!
