Doors open 6.30pm. Introductory price of £4. Pay at door. Refreshments included.

On each of these ‘WAGS’ sessions, being held in our railway carriage “Mary Jane” behind the Goods Shed, we have visiting published writers from various genres who, for the first half of the evening, will present, read and talk about their work.

Then, after a break for refreshments, there is an ‘open mic’ session in which the floor is open to any writers in the audience who may like to share and read a piece of their own work – just sign up to share as you come in.

Doors open at 6.30pm. Talk/reading/etc begins at 7.00pm.
