Merry May – Open Mic Event Tameside 28th May

Merry Month of May Theme – Open Mic Event
Denton Library

Saturday 28th May, 10.30am – 12.30pm


 Tomorrow, come and share readings, or just to listen, about the inspiring  month of May. I’ll be reading a scene from my fourth novel (which I’m currently editing- bit of a slog – hoping to launch this summer!)

If you are starting out or are a seasoned performer, come along and read your own work, or those of other writers, in a very encouraging atmosphere. Bring something on the theme of May, or any work of your own choice. Ideas and suggestions around the month of May included: Merry Month of May, Maypole, May Day, May Flower, Whit Walks and Brass Bands. All welcome!

Admission: Free. No need to book just turn up. Please contact for further information.

Venue:  Denton Library, Town Hall, Market Street, Denton, M34 2AP.
