Arvon Live Writing Day at Hebden Bridge Town Hall

Arvon's Lumb Bank is running a Live Writing Day with Will Self and Amy Liptrot at Hebden Town Hall on Sunday 28th August.

Is your writing – whether fiction or nonfiction – about places? Are you interested in how to use a certain location in your work? Do you want to push boundaries, both literary and geographical?

Over the course of two Masterclasses delivered live and in-person, Will Self and Amy Liptrot will share some of their own methods of exploring an area – on foot, in words – and give you a chance to try them out. Do places have their own voices? Do they carry memories? How can we as writers tune into and translate them? You will consider what makes successful place writing as well as what makes you an individual.

There will be opportunities to be inspired by the landscape of Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley as well as places from your own experience and imagination: town or city, island or forest, kitchen or carpark, map or cloud.

Wuthering Heights

Hebden Bridge Town Hall - 6.30pm-8.30pm

A vibrant new adaptation of Emily Brontë's elemental masterpiece.

Upon the brooding heath, unbound by the judgement of society, a wild and intoxicating obsession torments the moor. Be witness to a passion that goes beyond the grave.

SISATA engages with the nature of love, drawing out all its guises. In the toil for happiness, the lines between tenderness and mania, care and cruelty are woven in the mist.

Accompanied by beautifully haunting original live music and uplifting songs to support this whirlwind of a story, this tempest of the heart.
