And... We have done it!
And it was truly exceptional!
Well, what can I say? We had a wonderful evening yesterday at The Harrison in the company of our talented writers and musicians who were all captivating in their own unique way!
A lot of people have commented on the quality of the guests, the great venue, the fantastic atmosphere and on the look of the merch stall!
People have discovered new musicians and writers, which is exactly the aim of our evenings: to bring new audiences to authors and musicians and vice versa.
We think it is important for people to get out of their comfort zone and mix and match genres and scenes.
I wish to say a massive thank you to our writers and musicians Sarah Channing Wright, Syd Moore, Cathi Unsworth, Kirsten Morrison, Hi-Reciprocity, Kate Arnold.
Thank you to our sound man Rob for his help throughout the evening - we wouldn't have done it without him.
Thank you to Matt ArtPix for all the visuals and for being our man on the merch stall!
Thank you to photographer Stevek Photography - we will post a link to Steve's photographs of the event once they are online!
Thank you to Alan Pride for his professionalism and expertise!
Thank you to our wonderful audience who were so attentive!
It is becoming more and more difficult to find an audience like you who genuinely listens to the readers and musicians!
We were really chuffed to have in the audience members of some of the best bands around at the moment!
It was a real pleasure and honour to have with us Andy Heintz (front man of Flesh Tetris and The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing) as well as Charlie Fink and Justine Armatage of the superb The Cesarians...
I personally cannot wait to see them all on stage soon.
We do hope it will not be another two years before the next London: Winter Tales event, and we already have a few ideas for the next one as well as for some "Out of London" events...
Watch this space!
We hope to follow this up with a "proper" blog about the evening (and with pictures!) in a week or so. Please come again!
And watch out for some more Arcane Publishing announcements on here very soon...
