For the days of the Chester Literature Festival, a group of artists including best-selling author Laura Barnett and singer Kathryn Williams have been holed up in a house, creating brand new songs and written works. This artistic retreat will put people together who wouldn’t normally collaborate to try out new ways of working.
The only certainty is that they will come along and tell us about their experiences and perform the new works of poetry, prose or song that have emerged from this unique retreat.
Filled with brand new stories, brand new music and old fashioned smiles, this will absolutely be a night to remember.


Laura Barnett, author
