Words Weekend 2019
Fun Lovin' Crimewriters: Murdering Songs For Fun
What happens when six bestselling crime writers all discover that they are really tortured musicians masquerading as authors? Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers is the result! Join Mark Billingham, Chris Brookmyre, Doug Johnstone, Val McDermid, Stuart Neville and Luca Veste – still reeling from their Glastonbury appearance in June – as they join us to first talk about their crime writing and their astonishing array of bestselling novels – and then take to the stage to murder some songs for fun. A rare chance to catch the crimewriting super group and sure to be a criminally good evening.
Start time: 8.30pm
Venue: Sage Two
As everyone deserves equal access to entertainment, every event in Words Weekend will be accessible. In addition to the gold standard access provision at Sage Gateshead, all events will be BSL interpreted and there will be a roaming interpreter facilitating conversations throughout the venue.
Words Weekend will post a Social Story on their website for anyone who might find new situations difficult and would like to know what to expect from the festival. Sage Gateshead also offer short familiarisation visits.
We request that everyone is tolerant to the needs of other audience members, some of whom might need to take a break from a space during an event, for example. Lighting will be raised slightly higher than usual, sound levels will be limited at most events and more comfortable seating options will be offered in some spaces.
