Headlining at Worcester SpeakEasy on Thursday

Here’s some info about Worcester Speakeasy where I’m headlining on Thursday night. I can promise you lots of humbug (from me that is):

Christmas “Worcester SpeakEasy” at:
THE OLD RECTIFYING HOUSE N Parade, Worcester WR1 3NN
7.30 pm, on Thursday, December 11th

Headliner: often billed as ‘Midlands own Victoria Wood’, HEATHER WASTIE.

“Worcester SpeakEasy” is a monthly event of poetry and prose from the page and the stage (and a little music now and then), which takes place on the second Thursday of each month. The event promotes, showcases and encourages writers from the whole of Worcestershire and further afield; there is an invited headline poet each month. If you’d like to book a slot for December, please email Maggie and Fergus at speakeasy.litfest@gmail.com, or leave a message on our Facebook page.

If you haven’t got a slot and would like to take part then four, two-minute open mic slots will be available on the night: whether you are a seasoned performer or a complete novice – we want to hear from you!

The event is brought to you by your very own Worcestershire LitFest & Fringe, via Poet Laureate Emeritus Maggie Doyle and the Worcestershire Poet Laureate 2014 Fergus McGonigal, SpeakEasy’s host and MC.

Doors open at 7:00pm for a prompt 7:30pm start; we aim to be finished by about 9.45pm.
