Expect some laughs with poetry readings from Martin Figura and Salena Godden. Providing the soundtrack are indie-folk singer/songwriter Lucy Rose, and a DJ set from London based dance producer Bullion. Headlining the evenings proceedings is crime writer extraordinaire and Chair of the 2017 judging panel, Val McDermid.
