Unfortunately due to the constantly evolving coronavirus situation, Aye Write 2020 has been cancelled, and this event will no longer go ahead. We will contact ticket holders directly as soon as possible.
Aye Write is hosting the final live outing for Neu! Reekie!'s After Curfew anthology.
Leading the charge and your MC for the night is artist/provocateur Bill Drummond – the keeper of The Curfew Tower.
After Curfew is a book featuring 12 writers who visited The Curfew Tower in Cushendall as part of the Neu! Reekie! Residencies and contains new work by these writers as well as a preface and post-script by Bill Drummond. After Curfew is a hardback beauty, part of a limited run and not currently available online or in any bookshop - it will be available at this event directly from Bill and Neu! Reekie!
