Hotel Pelirocco, 10 Regency Square, Brighton, East Sussex. BN1 2FG. UK
Ten monthly events from July 2011 to April 2012

After the success of their first season of live literature and music events, enthusiastically endorsed by the writers and musicians who took part, including Cathi Unsworth, Amanda Smyth, Scott Bradfield, and Naomi Foyle, and audience members alike – with the venue at Brighton’s Hotel Pelirocco often standing room only, Ace Stories, created and directed by Jay Clifton, returns for a second season which promises to be even better than the first.

In partnership with The Writing School at Kingston University, London, and supported by Arts Council England, the ten events in Ace Stories: Season 2, all take place on Sunday nights, from 6pm – 8pm, at Hotel Pelirocco, Brighton. Each event features an headlining writer, with support readings from two writers local to Brighton, and live music, in addition to prize giveaways to ticket-buyers (via a raffle system) of books, CDs, and DVD, from Ace Records, Serpent’s Tail, and Momentum Pictures.

The first three events in the programme are:
