What a great night.

There was a range of fantastic readings on Thursday. Michael Keenaghan kicked it off by reading from one of his short stories. He is known for his straight up style, writing hard man stories, the likes of which seem made for the screen.

Then Joseph Ridgwell came up and read some poems from his Child of the Jago collection that sold out on the night. A fantastic poetry collection that tells the real stories of the East End throughout his experiences. Written with a real sense of nostalgia, whilst still getting to the nitty gritty.

There was also poet Tim Wells reading a range of poems, most of which had a brilliant sense of humour but also an undeniable truth. A poet well worth having a look at. He like your funny, fat uncle only with a sharper tongue and a much better vocabulary.

We also can’t forget the ‘adult cabaret’. I really didn’t expect her to get it all out!

The best part about the night though was meeting some fantastic people, they’re who I have spoken to over emails but only just met in the flesh for the first time. Just feel bad for them as a lot of them are cockney’s, poor good people. With a strange lust for jellied eels.

Good stuff all round, I hope everyone liked their Hand Job’s!

NO GODS, NO MASTERS

    Next round’s on me!
