8 March 2018 Tickets from £5.00

Most often seen hanging about the Northern Quarter, award-winning live literature promoters Bad Language head to Pendleton Library in Salford for a one-off evening of storytelling. Presenting specially commissioned stories inspired by the theme of building or destroying, writers Michael Conley, Ian Humphreys and Lenni Sanders will be delving into long timelines and wild visions from civilisations that have shaped the world today. This unique spoken word event is part of the BBC’s Civilisations Festival and Salford Libraries Live Season Two, and invites you to experience the oldest tradition of all – passing on tales – with a truly modern twist.
