Live events are central to what we do. It is our passionate belief that literature is never so alive as in the space between one person’s mouth and body and another’s eyes and ears, and we aim to create vibrant, exciting, and welcoming experiences you will never forget.
THE NEXT NEW LIBERTINES SHOW WILL BE AT STOKE NEWINGTON LITERARY FESTIVAL ON JUNE 3RD
Our events take various forms, from one-offs on particular themes, such as our shows at Oxford’s O3 Gallery to The New Libertines, a rapid-fire presentation of all kinds of the best contemporary writing, that we take on tour around the country.
We also run Not the Oxford Literary Festival, based at our spiritual home The Albion Beatnik Bookstore and now entering its third year, a celebration of all the wonderful things that don’t find their way into the mainstream festival.
And we are always delighted to host shows at venues across the UK (we may need help with travel costs if we are coming from afar). So far, for example, we have appeared 3 times at the fabulous London Literature Lounge at Covent Garden Poetry Cafe (and will be there again on May 17th next year), at Pow-Wow Literary Festival in Birmingham, and by invitation at the world famous Blackwell’s bookshop and Modern Art Oxford. If we can put on a show for you in pretty much any setting, just let us know – firstname.lastname@example.org
