A slight change of time and venue for this one – Nucleus Arts have invited us along to their Arts fest and have given us their Creative Cabin.
They’re also offering poets and storytellers the chance of an open mic slot, so do contact them direct, if that’s of interest.
I (Jaye) can’t actually be there, so knock yourselves out on my behalf! I’ll be working hard at a script-reading course at Ealing Studios!
A bonus event! An evening of performances so good, they’re criminal!
Join us at Rochester Children’s Library during the Dickens Festival for Poetrees inspired by the great man’s works. Or choose your Dickens Name and write your very own great work, starring the character you would have been!
It’s all free and there’s no need to book, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
Saturday, June 10 from 10.30am-1pm.
With many thanks to the City of Rochester Society for their grant support again this year, which enables the event to take place.

Our popular Cafe Crawl takes place on Sunday, October 2 from 12-3pm. It’s a great excuse to indulge in hot milky drinks and cake, while our writers and performers entertain you with their wonderful stories.
This year’s Garden Party is again a little different – we’re taking up residence at the Dickens Festival from 3-5 June, with activities ongoing throughout the three days to celebrate our most famous writer.
Awarded the CLPE 2015 Children’s Poetry Award for his first book Werewolf Club Rules, Joseph Coelho has been busy producing his latest performances ‘Cloaked Tales’.

(Both timetable and performers may be subject to change!)

Of course, Bill needs no introduction to Medway, not really!
