Thursday, 18 August — The Golden Hour at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, The Spiegeltent, Charlotte Square, 9-11pm, FREE
We’re super pleased to have been invited back to the UNBOUND part of this year’s book festival. This is the second to last ever Golden Hour and we have special readers, amazing musicians and just two hours to party. Please come and support us in the beautiful Spiegeltent!
The Golden Hour is many things. Part reading, part gig, part party, part disaster. This free monthly event originating from Edinburgh’s Forest Café, has travelled the highlands, England and Europe playing to sold out crowds in sweaty venues from Berlin to Applecross. And now this literary cavalcade return to Unbound’s infamous Spiegeltent with a killer line-up of rakish words and eclectic music all in a beautiful space. Featuring Joe Dunthorne, Kelly Link and William Letford, there’s music from the acoustic punk Billy Liar, hip-hop from Mikel Krumins former front-man of the legendary Abdominal Showmen plus the show-stopping, barn-burning Earl Grey and the Loose Leaves. Rest up with an open mind at The Golden Hour.
