Join Kevin and Oliver for a night of readings, performance and all round good times.

Kevin Boniface’s diaries have been published as books, short films, exhibitions, and as the ongoing blog, ‘The Most Difficult Thing Ever’. Covering subjects such as: laying some new, bright yellow concrete flags directly over the old cracked ones; having a bit of cake on your face; poking a yolky knife at a semi-naked man; emptying your catheter bag into the storm drain by the bedroom furniture shop; adjusting your vest top and putting out your cigarette (as a mark of respect); talking to the lonely pig on the moor; Mrs Begum’s lampshade; unnecessary porches.

The Bard of Bolton Oliver Lomax cuts language. He slices words up into warm vignettes, serves them up from deep inside his northern soul – telling tales of his Nana and spinning razor sharp takes on immigration, politics and crime. Imagine Alan Bennet,  Jarvis Cocker and Simon Armitage morphed into one he does it all and he is definately one to watch. Last year Oliver released his first pamphlet ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Nan’ which he read at a number of festivals including Greenman, Latitude, Nantwich Words and Music and the Laugharne Weekend. His work has been published in The Morning Star and he has also contributed work to the ‘For The Children of Gaza’ collection published by The Onslaught Press.
