We’ve had a hiatus since our last abctales readings evening, but are happy to announce that we have a new event planned for London on Wednesday 10 May.

It’s an opportunity for anyone to come along and read their work – poetry or prose – to a small audience of fellow writers, family, friends and lovers of literature. We hope to see some familiar faces, but don’t be deterred if you’re new on the scene – new writers and first time readers are always welcome to take part. Those of us who have done so before know that it’s great fun to read your work to a friendly audience, and to listen to fellow abctalers share their creations – and it’s always good to meet each other face-to-face.

The event will take place at The Wheatsheaf, a historic pub with a great atmosphere, 25 Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia, W1T 1JB (just north of the eastern end of Oxford Street), and will run from 7.00-9.30. Readers take part for free; for others it’s £5 which goes to support acbtales.

Anyone wishing to take part can contact We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
