As the dark nights draw in and the cold starts to nip, the warmth of a cosy pub and a friend’s company calls. Story season is upon us, so grab a mate, a hot toddy and join us at Gutter Street for a night of entertainment!

Gutter Street Nights invites 2 poets, 2 musicians and 2 actors to write and perform a new piece of material based under one collective theme for the evening. We also would like to offer those that perhaps haven’t performed or written a poem/song/speech the opportunity to do so in a relaxed environment. We find people work better with a deadline, so we will give you the deadline, we’ll give you the theme and the audience. You do the rest.

Our first theme is Sanctuary. What does sanctuary mean to you? What happens when a sanctuary fails you? And can you find art in the place you feel safest?
