Sarah, David and Helen are locals, so come and support them!

Liberty Tales LAUNCH

TOMORROW… it begins. Is Freedom around the corner? Is it buried in our past? Are we busy frittering our rights away? And what on earth do fish weirs have to do with anything?

It’s been a slow process turning what was originally an ephemeral night of fun to celebrate the 800th Anniversary of Magna Carta’s first signing into an actual book, but we are officially launching Liberty Tales, stories and poems inspired by Magna Carta TOMORROW.

A year late you say? Hah! We’ll have no truck with your paltry dates, Liberty is for life, not just a date in June. Split no hairs with us, we have a big document and by god, we know how to use it.

To No-one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.

Or in this instance,

Cake.

Join us where it all began (for us, anyway, not asking you to go to Runnymeade) at

West Greenwich Library, Greenwich High Road SE10.

Tomorrow: Thursday 17/11/2016 at 7.30 for readings, drinks and cake.

Stories from Katy Darby, Alison Lock, Cherry Potts,  Anna Fodorova (read by Carrie Cohen) David Guy (read by Cliff Chapman)
