If you fancy being Lady Bracknell or if you are writing the next Ballad of Reading Gaol then Melody Bridges of Worthing Writers Group is waiting to hear from you.

Worthing Writers Group are staging Wilde about Worthing on the seafront at Splash Point on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June to celebrate Worthing’s literary past and present.

Wilde about Worthing is not just about Oscar but will be an evening of extracts from classic writers of Worthing’s past including Jane Austen, Harold Pinter and the Romantic poets who visited.

Interspersed with the classics will be pieces by present day writers and there is a competition for local writers to write a scene, monologue, poem or short story about living in Worthing now.   There will be poetry, music ,dance and songs.

Melody said: “We are excited to be gathering together so many talented local people.  If you are a writer or performer  please do get in touch.  We think we will have a huge audience for our celebration of local talent.”

If you love poetry, music, dance and songs be part of that audience – for tickets contact Visit Worthing on 01903 239868.
