May 2016
Rendezvous: Wish You Were Here
Join us for an evening of poetry and performance to remember Julia Darling
We hope you can join us at Live Theatre, Newcastle on Sunday 5 June for an evening of poetry, music, cabaret and cocktails as we award this year’s Julia Darling Travel Fellowship and celebrate the life and work of Julia Darling.
The evening will be hosted by Charlie Hardwick, with performances of work by Julia and others by North East artists including The Poetry Virgins, Kissed, Zoe Lambert and Tim Dalling.
Julia Darling was a kind and generous writer who went out of her way to support and encourage many other writers to develop their work and their creativity. The Julia Darling Travel Fellowship is inspired by Julia’s love of travel and by the appreciation that she had of writing away from home, whether at creative retreats in the wilderness or in rented houses at the seaside. The prize supports a creative writer or group of writers to undertake a period of travel.
The Julia Darling Travel Fellowship is purely crowd-funded and supported by many generous donors. All proceeds from Rendezvous: Wish You Were Here will support the continuation of this prize from 2017 onwards.
Rendezvous: Wish You Were Here
Sunday 5 June, 7.30-11pm
Live Theatre, Newcastle
Tickets: £14/£10 (concs)

The Julia Darling Travel Fellowship is managed by New Writing North, with additional support from Live Theatre.
