Gone but Not Forgotten

Monday 2 November, 8pm

The Blind Poet, West Nicholson Street, Edinburgh


Alec Beattie & Max Scratchmann invite you to a night of storytelling celebrating the lives of inspirational people and combining an exciting bill of professional storytellers with open mic time to allow members of the community to share their personal stories.

Max Scratchmann will tell the very moving story of his grandparents and their forced exodus from Armenia during the 1915 Turkish pograms and their subsequent trek across the desert to India; while Alec Beattie will talk about his experiences as a nurse when he learned about the multiple facets of the dying process and the extraordinary people that it involved; and, finally, Kevin McClean will tell the story of his mother and her untimely death in prose and verse.

Five and ten minute open mic slots are also available and if you'd like to share the story of a loved one no longer with us please contact Max Scratchmann at max.scratchmann@btinternet.com to book a space.
