What to do when your favourites Neu! Reekie! & 404 Ink have birthdays to celebrate?
Throw the best Xmas party in town, obviously. Proudly presenting: THE BIG TEN AT CHRISTMAS!
Raise a glass to Neu Reekie’s 8th year and 404 Ink entering their terrible twos on 14/12.
To help celebrate, those ‘nasty women shaking up the book industry’ at 404 Ink bring performances from flash fiction extraordinaire Helen McClory, powerful poetry performer Nadine Aisha Jassat & then hilarious short story concocting Chris McQueer.
Neu! Reekie! only went and enlisted 2018 Orwell Prize winner Darren ‘Loki’ McGarvey to conjure up a unique Edina performance for the night! Alongside that Scotland’s award nominated, paragon and, yup, perhaps only all female hip-hop supremos The Honey Farm. NATCH, there’s MORE fantabulous names to follow here but do you have time to consider it?
Especially when, blessed be the fruit, that’s no even it for now! Neu Reekie! & 404 Ink are elated to unfurl a virtual visit from THE MARGARET ATWOOD, who will beam live from Canada straight into our shindig / up onto the big screen in Summerhall. Margaret joins us for a blether, an EXCLUSIVE reading and a Q&A. Get your Handmaid’s Tale thinking caps on. PRAISE BE!
With hosting and more from:
Live music + DJs, across multiple rooms, with your hosts Kid Canaveral, from 2pm until 1am. First act confirmed, London DIY punks, Big Joanie.
Having brought the house down with their Fringe Festival Summerhall show, Westhouse Collective’s outstanding ‘Transatlantic Ensemble’ return by popular demand, for a Xmas special to perform Fleetwood Mac’s iconic ‘Rumours’ album in it’s entirety.
