Eyeball scrawls: Chorlton Arts Festival

Chorlton. It gave us the BeeGees, Dangermouse and the hipster.

And tomorrow night, Wednesday 23 May, it will be the home of Flashtag when the group hosts its live final for the Flashtag Writing Competition.

The shorlistees will read from their pieces and we'll announce the winners in a tense countdown-stylee. (As in an actual countdown, not Countdown.) We'll have a few word games too and a special guest in the form of the wonderful Valerie O'Riordan, whose chapbook Enough I have just bought with some groats.

It's all part of Chorlton Arts Festival and it will take place in The Beech pub at 8pm. More information on our site.

We'll also all try to forget that most of the BeeGees are no longer with us, half of Dangermouse's creators are sadly no longer with us and, tragically, the hipster is well and truly alive.

Such is Chorlton's eternal burden. Let's feel sad for Chorlton. That's it. Feel the sadness. No, that's my leg. Feel the sadness.

There, that's better.
