Bad Language returns to The Castle Hotel, deep in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter for another night of absolutely brilliant spoken word and poetry.
Our headliner is the fantastic Stephen McGeagh. His first novel, Habit is described as, “Think Bret Easton Ellis. On a writing break in the north of England. And all he packed was Fight Club and some early Stephen King novels. Stephen McGeagh’s powerful debut will stay with you for a long time.”
