A Royle Visit

Back to Matt and Phreds last night for the launch of local author Nicholas Royle's new book of short stories, Mortality. After a slight panic at about 6.55pm when it seemed the author had gone walkabout, normal service was resumed and the reading took place only slightly later than planned. Nicholas Royle's tales of Fallowfield Film Club and references to Fletcher Moss Gardens went down well with a sizeable crowd, boosted by Nicholas's very own fan club/students. Another great night at MLF was rounded off with the mellow sounds of Matt and Phred's jazz band taking us into the wee hours, ready for another day of reading and writing fun tomorrow.
