Details

Special guests Billy Bragg and Laura Snapes will be joining us for our first ever Write Place, Write Time event, an informal conversation about the writing process, how we capture a sense of time and place with our words and the importance of communicating the stories of our lives and the culture around us.

Hosted by Chris Madden whose previous ‘Chinwag’ guests include Irvine Welsh, Viv Albertine and Brix Smith, he will speak to Musician and Activist Billy Bragg (also our Saturday musical headliner) and journalist Laura Snapes (Guardian deputy music editor, Writer for Pitchfork, The Observer, Mojo, Q) about their exciting and engaging careers.

This event is in aid of the charity MAP are currently raising funds to purchase their own building.
