Live Theatre’s stage is set to host poetry, music, cabaret and cocktails to celebrate the life and work of North Eastern writer, Julia Darling. Hosted by the charming Charlie Hardwick, performances come from The Poetry Virgins, Kissed, Zoe Lambert amongst others. Prize giving of the 2016 Julia Darling Travel Fellowship organised and supported by New Writing North is also a big part of the event on Sunday 5th June.

The prize is purely crowd-funded and supported by many generous donors including Lee Hall. Julia Darling was a kind and generous writer who went out of her way to support and encourage many other writers to develop their work and their creativity, and is still a big inspiration on so many, and this event really celebrates that. The Julia Darling Travel Fellowship is inspired by Julia’s love of travel and by the appreciation that she had of writing away from home, finding the ability to draw on all that was around her.

Rendezvous – Wish You Were Here takes place at Live Theatre, Newcastle on Sunday 5th June.
