Listen to a recording of this event:

The place is Airdrie. The year is 1983. Memorial Device, the best band that never existed, are about to change everyone’s lives forever.

This Is Memorial Device is a love letter to the small towns of Lanarkshire in the west of Scotland in the late 1970s and early 80s as they were temporarily transformed by the endless possibilities that came out of the freefall from punk rock.

Novel Writers

Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books.

In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.

Enjoy a pre-event drink in Spike Island Café, open slightly later than usual from 5pm until 6.30pm.
