Next week’s Liberty Tales Events- Newcastle and King’s Cross

img_1502We are taking our lovely new banner off to Newcastle next Thursday 1st December, to create the perfect ambience for our reading at Blackwells bookshop at 6.30, where Cherry Potts, Richard Smyth, and Alison Lock will read stories and Brian Johnstone will read poems. Slave ‘stealing’, the right to roam, escaping the past, and how freedom is punished.

Then we are taking it to Housmans on Saturday 3rd December for 5pm with stories from  Cassandra Passarelli, Liam Hogan, Carolyn Eden, Katy Darby. Freedom to travel and grow, love in captivity, walking out, and a small prison drama.

Heading North – Eclectic Iron festival Cullercoats

Arachne are going North once more, this time to Cullercoats close to Newcastle, but it’s seaside again. We aren’t performing this time, just taking part in the Inpress Bookfair on Saturday 6th June at the Eclectic Iron festival. Come along and say hello, and buy a book or three, we always have special deals when we sell face to face.

Eclectic IRON, a Seaside Festival of Words, Music & Oddities.

It looks a lot of fun, and there’s plenty of music too, so I’m hoping we’ll have time to take part in some of the events as audience – we’ve booked tickets for the Limerick session (Arachne author Rob Walton, who is also published by Iron Press, the founders of the feast, is reading at that) and the Anne Cleeves talk, the rest we’ll take on as the mood takes us.
