Science and fiction and other stuff

So, Manchester International Festival is in full swing, and I've managed to snaffle some comps and have had my first MIF 2017 event review published on Manchester Confidential. It was for the world premiere and for-one-night-only concert-come-film Last and First Men, at The Bridgewater Hall; created by Johan Johansson and adapted from the sci-fi novel by Olaf Stapledon. This book, I noted happily, was at the Blackwells pop-up store at bluedot festival at Jodrell Bank (pictured), which I went to yesterday, courtesy the Centre for New Writing. You can read all about what I thought of Last and First Men here.
