The Haunted North at Didsbury Baptist Church, Didsbury, 29 June 2017, from £5.00 - Book now

Part of the literature strand of this year’s Didsbury Arts Festival, which starts on Saturday 24 June and runs until 2 July, author Andrew Michael Hurley will be chatting about Lancashire, specifically Morecambe Bay – that expanse of nasty quicksand overlooked by the beaut of Art Deco that is the Midland Hotel, sat juxtaposed against the sinister landscape.

Andrew, a lecturer at Man Met, will read from his award-winning debut haunting novel The Loney, which follows a Catholic family on pilgrimage to the coast, who on arrival encounter pagan horrors…

The literature strand at Didsbury Arts Festival also includes Reading The Other, the latest outing in a great (almost) regular event with Michael Conley and the swapping of texts by writers on Wednesday 28 June at The Metropolitan; the Re/Place(d) project, with a creative writing workshop on Friday 30 June, and a performance event with Elizabeth Baines, Sarah Butler, Sarah-Clare Conlon, David Gaffney, Nicholas Royle and Adrian Slatcher at the Old Parsonage on Saturday 1 July; Man Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson, and John Hegley, with a show for kids.
