How Stories Find Us - a creative writing adventure in Bath
Eventbrite.co.uk
10am - 4pm


Stories are all around us. In our own lives. In the news. In the streets we walk.  The books we read.  The conversations we overhear.
In this one-day workshop we will look at how writers see the world. How to find the components of stories in our own experiences and observations, and how to piece these components together, using writers' craft and our imagination.
We will look at both conventional stories and more inventive forms of narrative. Come expecting to write, talk, think, and see both writing and the world around you with fresh eyes.
Free writing map when you register today!
Register today and we'll send you a fantastic writing map worth £4.99 from writingmaps.com full of creative writing prompts & story ideas.

The Guild is an elegant and accessible venue adjoining both the Guildhall and the Victoria Art Gallery - five minutes walk from Bath Spa station and perfectly located for making the most of the city's cafés, bars, shops and restaurants.

This full-day workshop runs between 10am and 4pm on Saturday.  We will break for lunch when you can expect to carry out a writing exercise in one of Bath's cafés or bars. 


Bonus extras!


Join us at 7pm on Saturday evening for a social get-together in one of Bath's characterful eateries to chat with your fellow writers about the day, the city, your writing projects - whatever you like.  There is no extra charge for the evening & no obligation to attend (but we hope you will!) - just pay for whatever you eat & drink.


And if you're able to stay over and make the most of your visit to Bath, why not strike while the iron's hot and join us back in The Guild on Sunday morning for some quiet writing time with coffee and pastries provided.  With  over 3,500 square feet of workspace  there are plenty of quiet corners, desks, sofas and beanbags where you can capitalise on your inspiration.  Again, there is no extra charge for this untutored session.

Weston Village Bath Festival
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
2pm - 11:59pm


More live music.... and to boot.... its in support of local veterans on armed-forces day... so although normal entry cost is £1 for Members & £2 for Non-Members, its FREE entry... but I guess a small donation would not go amiss....!

With a BBQ and 2 bars, bands playing are.... * The Bohemian Embassy * Risorius * Nobody * Saint Loe * Funkinsteins * The Radio Makers * Corvid * The Man From Funkle * Smallfry * The Lone Sharks * Meekers * The Beehives *

I am reliably informed by the impresario that the bands are on early - http://foxymusic.net/whats-on/whats-on-weston-festival - playing order is still to be advised, so don't be late or you might miss your favourite.

So why not pop along for some indoor and outdoor live music.... then pop back into Bath circa 8.00pm onwards to join Kevin Thorne at the Bath Social Night at The Westgate... two great events back-to-back.... if you have the stamina of course... ;-) ;-)

Bath social bar night
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
8pm - 11pm


Once again the Bath social bar night is posted up as a double venue event, beginning in the bar lounge from 6pm at The Royal Hotel to start things off then later we head over to more vibrant atmosphere in The Westgate Pub from 8pm onwards where the main event is taking place. The first smaller venue is ideal for anyone new to Meetup who would like to meet a few of our lovely Meetup members in a quiet setting because I realise for some newbies, entering a large busy bar when you don't know anyone can be daunting! It is also in a great central location, right opposite the railway station and the both the bus station and Southgate car park are just literally 2 minute's walk away. No need to RSVP twice, only one RSVP is required whether you are coming along to one or both locations. Everyone is welcome to attend just one or both locations. For anyone new, hopefully you'll have made some great new friends by the time the evening is over - that after all is what joining Meetup is all about! So, a quick recap....meet in the lounge of The Royal Hotel first (if you wish to) at 6pm then move to The Westgate Pub at 8pm where the main event starts. Easy! Any questions? No? Great....see you at either one or (hopefully) both!
