Bovine Cemetery

Bovine Cemetery requests the presence of all writers, readers, storytellers, thinkers, lovers of fiction, lovers of the new, enthusiasts, amateurs, activists and aficionados.

The Bovine Cemetery Readings provide a free space for established and up-and-coming writers to perform original, exciting material. The rest of us get the chance to take in an evening of freshly-baked fiction from the next generation of great storytellers.

Our evenings last around two and a half hours and consist of volunteer readers picked at random, as well as some of our favourite, specially-invited performers. Anyone and everyone is invited to volunteer, either by getting in touch with us in advance or by showing up on the night. The form is short fiction, the guideline is a five-minute rough maximum, the content is your own. See below for the theme of our

Our next rendezvous will be our Note to Self show at the Komedia Theatre on 17 August 2018. Open mic entries are welcome on the themes of all things ‘self’. We always recommend potential performers get their name down early, but we do aim to get as many people onstage as we possibly can throughout the night. More details, and details of our next season, available via our Facebook page, or via the Komedia website.
