Bad Language at the Castle with Neil Campbell at Castle Hotel, Manchester, 28 September 2016, free entry - Visit now

One of the most well-established live literature nights on the block, Bad Language this summer picked up the Best Regular Spoken Word Night trophy for a second year running in the national Saboteur Awards. No one has done this before, but, hey, they do attract a raft of talented headliners – July saw Man Booker Prize longlistee Wyl Menmuir grace the stage.

This month the Bad Language team – namely Edinburgh Fringe performer Fat Roland and one of the original founders Joe Daly – welcome Neil Campbell. Neil features in Best British Short Stories 2015 and 2016, and his debut novel, Sky Hooks, is out late October, with exclusive advance copies available at BL. Neil’s appearance will be bookended by ten open mic slots showcasing the best up-and-coming and established scribes in town, from poets to prose writers. And if you can’t make the main event, check out the BL Special FX slot at the Royal Exchange on 23 September (6pm, free).
