Incendiary! - Submissions are now closed + It's a record + Ticket info

Submissions are now closed for our 19 May 2019 event 'Incendiary!'. A huge thank you to all 89 Gloucestershire/S.Gloucs authors - the highest ever number - who submitted 113 stories - the highest ever number for a themed event.

My co-judge, author/novelist Ali Bacon and I will select ten stories to be read by their authors on Sunday 19 May at The Cotswold Playhouse in Parliament Street, Stroud, GL5 1LW. Doors open at 7.30. It starts at 8.00. 

The announcement of the ten stories and their authors for our 19 May event will be made by Thursday 11 April at the latest.


From Friday 12 April, tickets, priced as usual at £8, will be on sale on the Cotswold Playhouse website - 

You can also order tickets by phone - 0333 666 3366.

Unlike our former venue, the SVA, the Cotswold Playhouse uses allocated seating (tickets with seat numbers). The authors of the ten selected stories will be provided with a free allocated seat in the auditorium. Family and friends will need to buy tickets.

Do please come along, but do not tarry. The last twelve events all sold out well in advance (the last one in just six hours!), but that was at the SVA which has half the capacity of the Playhouse. Nevertheless I expect there to be plenty of interest in ticket sales.

There is a bar!
