The Hearth

Conversations. Creativity. Ideas.

Welcome to The Hearth

The Hearth is a place where people come together to hear stories and talk with one another. We warmly invite you to gather around, settle in with a drink or two, and enjoy a night of readings.

A handpicked mix of local creative thinkers, writers, and performers share thought-provoking readings and offer a brief discussion on their writing process. Then it’s over to you, as we invite our audience to engage with our readers by asking questions and responding to their work. All this in a relaxed environment that features good beers, live tunes and the potential to make some new and excellent friends.

Come and sit with us at The Hearth, we’d love to meet you!

Our next event is approaching fast! Our winter theme is:

 — The Sea —

Come along and join us on Thursday 28th June at The Jade. We’d love to see you there!

We are looking for readers for future Hearth events and we invite you to get in touch if there’s something you’d like to read. We welcome artists, writers, thinkers, performers, activists, or anyone with something interesting to say and a way with words and ideas. If you’d like to read at an upcoming Hearth night, please send us an email at and we can talk about if and where you might fit in the upcoming schedule. We look forward to hearing from you!
