Blackshaw’s New Writing Night

Blackshaw’s New Writing Night – 19th September 7pm £6

Our New Writing Nights are all about helping writers, actors and directors improve their craft, to meet new creative people, and help spark great ideas whilst never forgetting to entertain you, our audience.

So head to The Hen & Chickens, grab a pint of old traditional, get yourself a seat and…
… Watch! – Our latest outstanding selection of rehearsed play readings, poetry or comedy.
… Take part! – Help the writers, actors and directors get the feedback they need. Jot down your thoughts, chat to our roving reporters, tweet us, or chat to the artists in the bar afterwards. Tear it apart or tell us you love it – feedback is the name of the game!
… Don’t worry that it’s a school night! – We like to run a tight ship; if you need your beauty sleep, you can be on your way home by 9pm.
… But, never say never?! There’s always someone who wants to stay for an extra pint, so never fear the lonely bar blues if you want to stay an extra hour or three.

The line up is announced 2 weeks before the show – head to or follow us on twitter @BlackshawUpdate to find out more.
