Tuesday 27th September -  With Poet Patrick Mackie

Tuesday 25th October -  Guest speaker Julia How, publisher

Tuesday 29th November - A celebration of writing (with cake!)

Last Tuesday of the month (except Dec, Jan, Jul and Aug)
New Brewery Arts Café, please use rear courtyard entrance to the building

7:00 - 9:00pm
£4 entrance

(inc. free tea and coffee; other drinks at bar prices)

Writers in the Brewery is a ‘pop-in’ social session for everyone who is interested in writing. Poets, fiction writers, biographers and non-fiction writers – all are welcome.

  • Guest speaker/performer each month: an author, publisher, poet, journalist, musician or groups, who share their work and entertain us.
  • Open ‘mic’ each evening for anyone to read and share their work.

It is an opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn about groups, competitions, classes and workshops and a chance to showcase your own work if you want to. So come along to share your work or just sit back, sip your drink and listen to others.   

Run by Rona Laycock – Rona is a regular tutor at New Brewery Arts
