The first of our ‘LIVEwire’ Leeds residency nights took place at Hyde Park Book Club on 2 October, with Salena Godden and Nafeesa Hamid going down a storm in West Yorkshire. The start of the event was delayed as we had to bring about 20 extra chairs down to accommodate everybody, and Matt Abbott was on hosting duties, including open mic.
As well as the video highlights from Idle Work Factory, they’ve also taken some ace photos (below). Huge thanks to our open mic performers: Lence, Sally Anne Earl, Claire Crossdale, Tahira Alia Rehman, Joe Williams, Natalie Davies and Camille McCawley.
Our next ‘LIVEwire’ Leeds event stars Joelle Taylor and Ollie O’Neill on Wednesday 4 December, and tickets are on sale here.
