Let history record that our RUINED short story night for Manchester Histories Festival was an excellent success.
Eleven scribes told tales inspired by the lost buildings of Manchester: we had humour and horror, weirdness and whimsy, sadness and joy.
Our sincere thanks must go to our performers Abi Hynes, Adam Blaize, Benjamin Judge, David Hartley, Joe Daly, Lee Moore, Sarah Butler, Sarah Jasmon, Sian Cummins, Tom Mason, Trisha Starbrook and compere Fat Roland.
