On Sunday 21st September 2014, as the autumnal equinox made its presence felt, the last event this year at the Brooklyn came to a close.
It has been said that one of the Beckham children was named after a special place where he was conceived. Having said that, upstairs at the Brooklyn is a wonderful venue for WOL Bolton... and David did play just down the road!
A Joseph Holt's hostelry with more than ample off road parking within it's grounds was a fitting venue for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
This was the first Write Out Loud event I had ever attended and it did not dissapoint.
It was compared by the genial Jefferama throughout, a man called Roy, Jeff himself, Dave Morgan, Val Cook, Gus Jonsson, Potting-shed Pete, Scott Devon, each contributed a standard of artistic and poetic licence on a cross-section of life and acute observation. Two songs from the lyrically gifted Paul Blackburn still had me giggling on my journey home. A thoroughly enjoyable evening of which I would recommend when it starts again in April 2015.
One for your future diary whether novice or natural.
A great night indeed.

Well, what a turnout at the Brooklyn tonight. The bar was certainly raised and each one of the performers stepped up to the mark. A well organised and lively evening was enjoyed by all. Performers from right across the age range, from youngsters to octogenarians strutted their stuff loud and proud. First timers were amongst the old hands but you would never have guessed, such was the quality on display. Live From Worktown certainly brought out the best on what was a thoroughly enjoyable romp through the history of a working town, and more. More of the same please. Thanks to all who brought it together.
Cheers
Pete Slater.
