After a fantastic launch event with Maria Ferguson and Toria Garbutt on 15 February, Nymphs & Thugs return to Seven Arts Leeds on Thursday 10 May with Cecilia Knapp and Louise Fazackerley.
The second instalment of ‘LIVEwire at Seven Arts’ is presented in association with Ilkley Literature Festival’s Word In The City programme, and as usual it’ll be hosted by yours truly. All 5 open mic slots went within 48 hours of the event going online.
Click here for the Facebook event. We’ve a #PAYF policy, with a suggested donation of a tenner. The overall aim of the night is to bring nationally acclaimed acts to West Yorkshire; particularly those who’ve never gigged in Leeds before.
We originally called the night ‘SOAPBOX at Seven’, but soon realised that there’s already an established spoken word night called ‘SoapBox’; hence the sudden rebrand. ‘LIVEwire’ is named after Salena Godden’s trailblazing N&T album release (available here).
