To balance it up we thought we would invite female author

Tagged ‘literary hero’ by The Skinny, Rosie is a nove...list, poet and singer with post-punk band The March Violets. She also performs twisted cabaret as Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen, cabaret chanteuse and mistress of ceremonies. With a passion for language nurtured by libraries, she started out in spoken word, garnering praise from Apples and Snakes as ‘one of the country’s finest performance poets’.
Her award-winning short stories, poems and essays have been widely anthologised. She has six solo collections of poetry including 'Everything Must Go' (Holland Park Press 2012), which draws on her experience of throat cancer. Her new collection, ‘As In Judy’ (Flapjack Press) is out now. Rosie was awarded a Hawthornden Fellowship in 2017. She has also received the DaDa Award for Performance Artist of the Year, the Diva Award for Solo Performer, and a Poetry Award from the People’s Café, New York.

We at A Splendid Day Out are hugely proud to announce the appearance of prolific Science Fiction and Fantasy author Michael Moorcock. Many of you music fans out... there will know of his Association with Hawkwind, one of the country’s most famous progressive rock bands. Writing the lyrics of Sonic Attack from the Space Ritual Album, he has also written lyrics for the band Blue Oyster Cult.
His books have included; The Nomad Of time a compilation volume of his early steampunk trilogy. The Elric Of Melnibone series, Corum of the Silver Hand series, Hawkmoon series( a personal favourite) and the very Steampunk, Jerry Cornelius set of books. He wrote the script for the film The Land That Time Forgot and one of his books was also made in a film The Last Days Of Man On Earth, one of his Jerry Cornelius books
We know his appearance at A Splendid Day Out is going to be of great interest to his army of sci-fi fans as well as amongst Hawkwind fans. It has been many years since he has been to the UK and Morecambe in person.
Kendal Farmers’ Market is on the last Friday of the month, apart from December when it is the last Friday before Christmas.
Next Market will be on Friday 26th J...anuary
March 30th (Good Friday)
Arts of Steam
As part of the celebration of all things “Steampunk”, A Splendid Day Out has been successful in persuading the originator of the term “Steampunk” ...to attend and speak at the Arts of Steam segment of June 2018’s festival. KW Jeter is a science and speculative fiction author who, whilst looking to give a name to the Victorian based speculative science fiction work he was undertaking, in conversation with his friends came up with the word “Steam-punk”. In doing this, he not only gave what he was writing a contextual basis, he also laid the foundation for a creative and irreverent lifestyle we know today. 2017 was the 30th birthday of Steampunk so we have aimed to celebrate this by highlighting the literary heart of our lifestyle. As part of this, KW Jeter was very kind and prompt in offering his services to the event and in doing so also professed a local connection as he visited Morecambe with his late wife.
An author of over 30 books, he has written sequels to the famous “Blade Runner” written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, and even penned similar in the “Star Wars” and Star Trek franchises.
We are delighted To have this world-renowned author speak at A Splendid Day Out.
