Thanks to all who came along last night for a hot and sultry Other Room. Our next event is in the cool of early October and it’s a really special one. We’re very  pleased to be hosting Charles Bernstein and Susan Bee, over from the US. Maggie O’Sullivan completes the line-up to make a real power trio. Hope to see you there.

Line-up for Thursday

Unfortunately, David Kennedy won’t be able to make it to our next event on Thursday 23rd August. But we’ve still got three great performers: Joey Frances, Wanda O’Connor and James Wilkes, back at our usual haunt of The Castle Hotel , Oldham Street, Manchester. 7.00 start, free entry as always. Hope to see you there.
