 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 victoria.heyes@tameside.gov.uk for further information.

Creative Social Group: ‘Creative Fusion’ Meeting 4th December

creative fusioncsg photo

At the last meeting on Thursday, we discussed ideas for possible events to get the project up and running, and which had scope for a wide range of creative input from the group. Based on some material already produced/being developed by Nicola, Mark, Margaret and Pamela, we were able to outline a framework for a calendar of events to work on for 2015. The potential for ‘creatives/artists’ to collaborate with stories, poems, images, film, music, visual arts, dance, drama, comedy, performing arts (and?) is huge, only limited by resources/time. Of course, we have the challenge of getting creative about those too. Here are the suggested events – please ask questions, give feedback, share thoughts and ideas. Also possible venues.
1. Suggested date early January: Creative Fusion showcase/Open Mic.
2. Suggested date Last week February: Creative Fusion presents ‘The Snow Queen’
3. Suggested dates: Midsummer – Bankswood Inspire Festival: Festival date to be confirmed – Creative Fusion presents ‘Folklore’
4. Suggested date: Hallowe’en: Creative Fusion presents ‘The Riddle’

Our ‘Creative Fusion’ event will raise money for Life you choose, which is a local group for people with learning difficulties. The organisers are currently working towards the group becoming a charity, which will be open 5 days a week.
