To celebrate ten issues of Open Pen, we’re holding another live event in Hackney at the Hackney United Services Club. Tickets for the event are now on sale. As ever, tickets will be available on the door for anyone wishing to pay cash. By that token, the bar does not accept card, so please bring cash if you plan on whistle-wetting.
Tickets are priced at £5. Doors open at 7pm. But you can grab a drink downstairs any time onward from 6:30pm.
The usual mix of live readings from new and exciting authors, live Beat Jazz from Canuck enthusiast Piers Pereira and ivory-tinkling Mark Smith, literary comedy in the form of Filthy Fiction, and a microfiction tournament will be complimented by a one-scene play, making Open Pen Live a truly diverse literary event that you won’t want to miss out on (unless you’re tired on the night, miserable, or racist against Canucks).
The event takes place on Thursday, 13th February, and with modest ticket pricing, live performances, and generous breaks for purchasing cheap drinks, it’ll make for a good Valentines date that isn’t too Valentinesy.
Check out photos from our last event in late 2013.
