Writing Comes AliveNow in it's fourth year, this series of public readings celebrates and encourages creativity in writing. Each event is held at the Sidney Cooper Gallery in St Peter's Street 6.30pm - 7.30pm. Enjoy the Gallery's current exhibition with a glass of wine, before the reading begins.

Don't miss a wonderful opportunity to listen and pose questions to our leading contemporary writers. Our next author is Simon Ings. Following the last event we have a limited number of signed copies of Fan: A Novel by Danny Rhodes in advance of its official release.
