    Starring Louise Jameson (Eastenders, Dr Who, Tenko)

    The 'announcement' is in the local paper, stating time and place of a murder in Miss Blacklock's house.
    However the victim is not one of the several occupants, temporary and permanent, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, with Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution-at some risk to herself-in a dramatic confrontation scene just before the final curtain.

    Eccles British Library Writer in Residence John Burnside introduces his new memoir. In this exquisite, haunting book, he describes his coming of age from the industrial misery of Cowdenbeath and Corby to the new world of Cambridge. This is a memoir of romance – of lost love and the love of being lost – darkened by threat, illuminated by glamour.

    John Burnside’s recent books include the poetry collection All One Breath (February 2014), the book of stories, Something Like Happy, the novel, A Summer of Drowning, shortlisted for the 2011 Costa Prize, and his poetry collection, Black Cat Bone, which won both the 2011 Forward Prize and the T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry. He is a Professor of English at St Andrews.

    Music and words, stories and songs, poetry and performance all come together at The Harrison Bar, London, on Thursday 18th September for Scriggler: Live.

    Celebrating the launch of Scriggler, a hub for anyone who wants to read, write and discuss any topic in any style, the evening is one of inspiration and imagination.

    And so we have Sam Berkson, the ‘poet thug’, giving us his take on the issues he sees in London, counter balanced by the sweet and gentle yet no less powerful Jo Brandon. See magical work courtesy of Anna Beecher, hear some work submitted to Scriggler, and listen back as lovely and lilting Hannah Scott plays some acoustic tunes.
