::WRITER’S BLOCK BBQ! 12TH AUG 2012::

July 27, 2012

It’s ‘summer’, at least in theory, so what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than feasting over freshly prepared BBQ food on the Hoxton rooftop of The Macbeth + drinks, good music & beautiful people. Afternoon indulgence will be followed by a serene selection of live music and poetry talent on the main stage of the venue. See below for the full scoop. Our soiree shares the same date with the Olympics Closing Ceremony, but fret not, we’ll be done 2 hours prior to that, leaving plenty of time to Usain Bolt to the nearest TV.

Limited early bird tickets available here: : http://www.wegottickets.com/event/175313 or on the door, via individual artist guest lists.
