About this Event

AFTER CURFEW BOOK LAUNCH with BILL DRUMMOND * VICTORIA MCNULTY * WILLIAM LETFORD * MICHAEL PEDERSEN * KEVIN WILLIAMSON. Plus LIVE set from EMPRESS. CINEMATTIC * MARK COUSINS PREMIERE

This month we're back at Leith Theatre on Fri 18 Oct to OFFICIALLY LAUNCH our sparkly new 'After Curfew' anthology, published by Bill Drummond's Penkiln Burn. A new book from Neu! Reekie! Is always a big thing for us. This is our 3rd. The man himself, Mr Bill Drummond, will be in Leith at this event, taking the stage. As will a number of the book's contributors. We'll have live hip hop from Glasgow's MC Empress and much more besides.

AFTER CURFEW

'After Curfew' features 12 writers who visited The Curfew Tower in Cushendall in 2018 as part of Neu! Reekie! residencies.

'After Curfew' features new work by all and a preface and post-script preface by Bill Drummond.

'After Curfew' is part of a limited run and not currently available online or in any book shops. It is a hardback beauty and book number 23 on Penkiln Burn publishing.

'After Curfew' will be available at this event — you will hear from Bill Drummond, Victoria McNulty, William Letford, Michael Pedersen & Kevin Williamson. The other writers featured in the book are: Hollie McNish, Claire Askew, Salena Godden, George Gunn, Tam Dean Burn, Kirsty Logan, Skye McDade-Burn & Emer Martin.

Alongside the book launching we'll be treated to a fast fire hip-hop set from one of Scotland's most exciting voices: Empress.

On top of all that we will also have the premiere of Mark Cousins new documentary 'Alexander's Film' which tells the story a young boy living with Niemann-Pick Type C, a rare neurodegenerative disease.

To top that off a bespoke film programme sculpted by Spanish and Latin American specialists CinemaAttic — continuing their residency within N!R!'Scotland's favourite avant-garde noisemakers..Neu!
