On 2 May 2019, University of Bolton’s Creative Writing, English and Theatre students proudly presented an exciting night of live entertainment celebrating creative writing talent in performance.
School of the Arts students teamed up with local organisations including Bolton Library and Museums Services and The Print Room, to deliver a stunning night of performances from actors and writers. From moving poems to the laugh-out-loud script, the night offered up an extensive range of home-grown talent and thrilling performances.
But that’s not all – issue seven of The Bolton Review was also launched. The latest instalment of the university’s prestigious student-led creative arts magazine, Sunshine and Cider, is filled with fine pieces across poetry, fiction, scriptwriting and photography.

Speaking on the night, professional actor Pegeen Murphy said it was “an absolute pleasure” to perform such high-quality student work, and that The Bolton Review contains “great new writing."
The New Writing Showcase goes from strength to strength each year”, said Lecturer in Creative Writing, Ben Wilkinson.
'It is a real testament to the writing talent here at the University, but also the work-based skills that our undergraduate programmes deliver. Every student involved should be proud of their achievements in helping to make it a night to remember.'
