It's here! We've been running That's What She Said in London for over a year and now it's finally coming North for a very special Halloween launch event.

That's What She Said is a night of storytelling, spoken word and performance written and performed by women. We welcome a wide range of speakers, showcasing everything from slam poetry, true tales and fiction to contemporary political thought and comedy. Our mission is to champion and celebrate writing by women, and to provide a platform to the writers and performers we love.

Who can you expect to see at our Halloween spoken word spooktacular? We're still finalising the line-up, but featured speakers include...

WORKER BEES, JASMINE CHATFIELD, AMY WHITELL, HANNAH KATE
&
ROSIE GARLAND

We're coordinating this event in partnership with our pals at Aspidistra Books, who'll be bringing along a selection of brilliant books by the best women and LGBT writers around for you to browse and buy. All genders are welcome to attend, and we'd love to see you in your Halloween costumes, though you're of course welcome to come as you are too.
