Local creative group invited to ‘international showcase’

Have your say

Following a recent successful evening of electronic experimental music and science fiction ‘dub’ readings at a photographic gallery in Whitby, a group of Whitby writers and musicians have been invited to read and perform at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester.

Local writer and Caedmon School English teacher, Chris Firth, has been asked along to read from his latest Science Fiction novella, ‘The Strip’ (an island survival story inspired by local traffic islands).

Elusive local electronica collaborators, Ammonites, have also been asked along to showcase their mesmerising brand of futuristic music and digital animations at the event.

Organiser of the Manchester Anthony Burgess Foundation event, Daithidh Maceochaidh of Skrev Independent Press, said: “I came through to Whitby to see Chris read live from ‘The Strip’ and to invite him to Manchester, but I was so blown away by what the Ammonites were doing I begged them to come through to the Manchester event too. It’s a real international showcase for writers and musicians.”

Copies of ‘The Strip’ and Ammonite CD’s are available exclusively in Whitby from Folk Devils music shop, Grape Lane. ‘The Strip’ is now also available as a kindle download on Amazon.
