31.10.2016 - First Draft, Manchester

Monday 31st October 2016
Venue:
Chetham's Library,
Long Millgate,
Manchester M3 1SB

7.30pm
Free – no booking required

When the darkness knocks...
First Draft's Halloween event at Chetham's Library

It's Halloween, and there is a darkness calling from a building that has witnessed the shadows of history flood the city. Chetham's Library has soaked itself in secrets and stories and now First Draft coming to let the building speak. Our incredible line-up of performers will be sharing new music, stories, poetry and drama to tell the tales that the building cannot speak itself.
Our performers will explore the creepy, strange and dark in this thick-walled, medieval building. Can a place ever shake it's past? And if that past is as a priests residence, a prison, a gunpowder factory, a stately home and a school — what happens when all those histories wake up at once?
#darknessknocks

First Draft is a bi-monthly Manchester-based cabaret night, showcasing brand new work: drama, fiction, poetry, music, comedy, storytelling, spoken word, and more. We aim to provide a space for writers and performers of all kinds to test out new ideas in front of a supportive audience.

FLIM NITE - The Silence of the Lambs

 What would 'Silence of the Lambs' look like distorted by poets, comedians, and musicians?

Although a relative newcomer to Spoken Word, BIGCHARLIE POET's work ranges from the odd through the observational to the very personal. His notebook is his constant companion.

Fifty percent Spike Milligan and fifty percent Sylvia Plath (but not necessarily the talented halves), CATHY BRYANT has won thirteen literary awards and had two well-received books published.

MAYA CHOWDHRY found her voice on CND marches; sewed it into poetry and queer politics. She has inTer-aCted, partiCipated, narRated to make still, moving and interactive words and imagery for page, stage, web and waves.

ROSIE GARLAND has always been a cuckoo in the nest. She is an eclectic writer and performer and sings in post-punk band The March Violets. Her latest solo collection is "Everything Must Go" (Holland Park Press). Her debut novel "The Palace of Curiosities" was published by HarperCollins UK in 2013 and her second novel, Vixen released in June 2014. Find her poetry in great weather for MEDIA's latest anthology "I Let Go of the Stars in My Hand". http://www.rosiegarland.com/

JACKIE HAGAN was brought up on broken biscuits by hecklers. www.jackiehagan.weebly.com

Multiple slam winning host of Evidently and the Word War Slam series KIEREN KING grew up in the "posh end" of Salford writing bad love poetry in the back of his English book. A heathen and an anarchist, he must be approached with caution at all times. Tickling him behind the ear has been proven to soothe him.

SARAH MILLER is a poet, theatre deviser and playwright with poems published in anthologies and over twenty plays produced. She's passionate about Jane Austen, vegan cake, tea sets and all things gothic and is also partial to big frocks and hats. She is currently working on a joint poetry collection with Melanie Rees, which is being published in 2015.

JANE ORMEROD was born on the south coast of England and now lives in New York City. She is a founding editor at great weather for MEDIA. Jane performs across the United States and beyond. Her books include "Welcome to the Museum of Cattle" and "Recreational Vehicles on Fire" (both from Three Rooms Press). http://www.janeormerod.com/

STEPH PIKE is an activist and performance poet. Her poetry is urgent, topical and eloquent. She has performed extensively across the country and has been published in several anthologies. Her first collection, "Full of the Deep Bits was published in 2010. She is passionate about the transformative power of poetry, both personal and political.

Ex-grande dame of British poetry and literary King Dong of the contemporary scene, GERRY POTTER's "The Chronicles of Folly Butler" is out now with Flapjack Press. https://www.facebook.com/gerry.potterpoet

REBECCA AUDRA SMITH drags words up from the ocean's floor. They are strange rusty things which she attempts to shine.

26.10.2014 - Gothic Manchester Festival 2014

A stellar day in the neo-gothic pomp and circumstance of John Rylands Library's magnificent Historic Reading Room. It's been a dream of mine to read there... and dreams come true.
A delicious highlight of the event was the specially designed (and rather foxy) cake by the talented Annabel de Vetten of Conjuror's Kitchen.
