Our headliner for October 2018 is Beth Underdown, a Rochdale writer whose debut novel The Witchfinder’s Sister is based on the witch-hunts orchestrated by Matthew Hopkins in seventeenth century Essex. She now lives and works in the Peak District, and teaches others how to write. She recently teamed up with the National Trust archive to produce Love makes as many, ghost stories capturing the voices of women at Quarry Bank Mill. We can’t think of a better Halloween headliner.
Spread the word to your ghoul-friends and aaaargh-quaintances that we have ten brilliant open mic readers at Bad Language in Manchester on October 31st. You’re noticing a theme, right? Five of those open mic spaces are reserved for people who have never performed with us before. Line-up announced shortly.
