If you haven’t checked in with the Worcestershire LitFest and Fringe team yet this year then you really are missing out! We have been dotted at various venues around Worcester City Centre since last Friday, rolling out a stellar display of literary talent.
Our most recent events were Monday night’s Worcester Writers’ Circle and Friends’ evening, that took the form of Short Stories, Sketches, and Scurrilous Scribings. I am delighted to say that this evening was an absolute cracker of an event! We laughed, we emphasised, we shook our heads and groaned, and overall it was a marvellous evening with a supportive audience.
Last night saw something different brought to LitFest. The Hive, in partner with our fine selves, housed a theatrical work titled The Murderer – inspired by the Luke Kennard poem of the same name – performed by Clown Funeral. We didn’t know what to expect – although we were all excited by the prospect of seeing something so new and fresh. Well, we were NOT disappointed! The hour-long (ish) performance was moving, emotive, and unexpectedly amusing at times. Without giving too much of the concept away – it really is a surprise that you should experience for yourselves, should you get the opportunity – The Murderer is a refreshing and unexpected take on a controversial topic, and it made for wonderful viewing!
And that brings us to today! What can you look forward to from here on out? PLENTY! The Anti Poet are set to bring down the house at Drummonds Bar this evening and then we’re back to Cafe Bliss tomorrow (Thursday) evening for a PACKED night of open mic performers AND a featured appearance from Pete The Temp. So get booking, folks, because tickets are still available online and you’ve still got time to enjoy this year’s LitFest and Fringe!
