Across 24 weeks in 2020 and monthly virtual events in 2021, Simon Bewick and Victoria Watson’s series Noir at the Bar has ensured that crime writing enthusiasts have been able to continue connecting with writers throughout the pandemic. Now, the pair are bringing their knack for tapping the biggest names and rising stars in the crime genre to their home town. Bay Tales Live, a one-day event coming to Whitley Bay Playhouse on Saturday 12th February, is the pair’s first in-person live event for quite some time.

It kicks off with a true local crime heavyweight, Anne Cleeves, author of Vera and Shetland, in conversation Vaseem Khan, writer of the series of Baby Ganesh Detective Agency books. The rest of the day sees six curated panels discussing a variety of different topics which will include the likes of Russ Thomas, author of the bestseller Firewatching, Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal (recently adapted for Netflix) and Dr Richard Shepherd, Britain’s foremost forensic pathologist, as well as a whole host more. It’s a chance for those dedicated to crime writing to be able to come together and once again discuss their shared passion as well as hear some killer conversations.
