Our next event is not only something completely new but it’s at the other end of the M62 in Manchester!!
Manchester? In this, Liverpool’s much vaulted Capital of Culture year???
We know it might seem like a bit of a trek but it’ll be worth the journey as we’ll be flying the flag for Liverpool writers…
One of our regular members, Neil Edwards, is a talented and successful writer who along with two other equally talented Liverpool writers, Graeme Flynn and Peter Collins, make up Fully House Trained (FHT).
FHT have created a unique set of comedy sketches written for the stage, which have been selected to be part of Manchester’s annual 24:7 Theatre Festival. Performed live by some of the region’s top actors, FHT is described as smart, irreverent and slightly dangerous sketch comedy – just what we like!
The festival itself takes place every year from 21st -27th July. culturepool is planning to watch FHT’s sketches on Saturday 26th July @ 2pm. Following the performances we’ll meet the actors & writers for a chat.
We’ll be travelling via train from Lime Street to Manchester @ 12:20pm. Tickets are about £9 for an open return. Tickets for the show can be bought via the 24:7 festival website or by telephone (see details bottom left).
