SALON EVENT: September Seaside Salon

Updated: Oct 18

Tuesday the 27th of September, 2022, 6pm, Live and on Zoom


We do like to be beside the seaside, so for our September Salon we’ve got friends from Portobello to tell us about their Literary footprint.


Once the Major Festivals in August are over, it’s good to remember there’s never a month of the year when other Mini Festivals take place. The Portobello Book Festival has been going for fourteen years, and is perfectly located in the calendar as September turns into October and autumn sets in.

We’ll be welcoming some of the organisers again to tell us about what events and authors will be there this year, including many of our good friends and former guests.

We’re also pleased to welcome Max Scratchmann, who hails from around those parts too. The Poetry Circus began in Portobello and has since spread its wings as a publishing and performance project. We’ll talk to Max about what he’s achieved, and what’s coming up next in the Circus.


Please note, we won’t actually be at the Seaside – we’ll be at the Outhouse – but for those who can’t be with us in person, or are stuck on the beach, we’ll be live-streaming the ‘formal’ section of the evening (from 7pm) so everyone can participate.

There will be a wine reception, and plenty of time before the presentation begins. We will open the zoom at 6.45 and will welcome our guests at 7pm. Online attendees are welcome to hang around in the zoom for more informal chatter, which we can monitor. How it works... 6.00: Wine Reception at the Outhouse

6.45: Open the Zoom meeting

7.00: Welcome Guest Speakers

7.20: Introduce Porty Book Fest Programme

7.45: Live Mingling, and Zoom chat


Tickets are available from Eventbrite – please state which ticket type you require as numbers will be limited. We will send a zoom invitation to all attendees anyway.

All Salon Events are free. We invite a small donation (£3) for the glass of wine, or encourage people to buy us a coffee to help fund our work. We look forward to seeing you in person or in the zoom-room!
