Come on down to Christmas like it’s the end-of-the-world for No Dice Collective’s 9th project, this time in collaboration with The Writing Squad.
Taking inspiration from the Burgess Foundation’s Future Fictions season about all things apocalyptic, LAST CHRISTMAS features music and spoken word by some of the north’s best new composers and writers. This is an alternative Christmas concert not to be missed.
No Dice Collective perform new music with no nonsense. They’ve had several sell-out performances around Manchester, debuted Anthony Burgess’ work and recently performed at Kendal Calling festival. Made up of professional musicians from the University of Manchester and RNCM, No Dice Collective continues to commission and perform new music.
The Writing Squad provides workshops, 1-1 support and investment for young writers. They have worked with 211 since 2001. At the last count, 35 make their living as writers or in the cultural industries, a further 50 are beginning to make a name for themselves and/or some of their living as published, performed or produced writers and activists.
