Kizzy is King of Edinburgh. And Queen. And Prince...

Posted by Nick Hennegan on Friday, July 27, 2018,
I've just realised I've not been on here since May.  It's mainly the fault of my writing a new verison of Hamlet.  Called, Hamlet-Horatio's Tale, it's a one-man show, played by a woman, Kizzy Dunn, pictured above. And with Sir Derek Jacobi as the voice of Old Hamlet.  And I've got to get back to rehearsals now, so more later.  Come and see us at the Assembly Rooms on George Street.  You won't regret it.  And you can buy me a drink...!  x

Good Areas for Creative Pubs in London. 

1.  CHISWICK, LONDON, W4.
Chiswick (Listeni/ˈtʃɪzᵻk/ chiz-ick) is a district of West London, England. 

Chiswick, or ‘leafy  Chiswick’ as it seems to be known colloquially throughout London, is an interesting area for many reasons. Not least of which is the fact the London League of Irish Writers was established here in the 20th Century. This may have had something to do with the fact W.B. Yeats made his home here, as did the poet Alexander Pope, ...

By Kenneth Wardrop, Edinburgh Napier University and Anna Leask, Edinburgh Napier University

The Edinburgh Festival is upon us again, a three-week spectacular that turns the Scottish capital into the biggest arts destination on the planet. It is in fact a number of different festivals, with ...

Autumn Events in London. And Spreadsheets. Our Friends.

Posted by Nick Hennegan on Friday, October 2, 2015, In : Nick Hennegan 
I should be writing here more often, but to be honest, running the London Literary Pub Crawl takes a chunk of time.  We've done incredibly well over our first year or so, but I've decided we could do much better, so we're looking to raise £30k for marketing.  It'll make us a real attraction in London and my Chinese actors stand poised, ready to go.

But we're writers, not accountants.  Fortunately I've found a brilliant accountant who is able to frame my terms of reference in accounting speak ...

Defying the norm? Hardly, the Edinburgh Fringe defines it.

Posted by Nick Hennegan on Sunday, August 9, 2015, In : British Theatre 
This is interesting if you are performing or considering visiting the Edinburgh Festival.  We personally love it, but understand the sentiment expressed here, by Stephen Greer, Lecturer of Theatre Practices at Glasgow University.  Reprinted from The Conversation, with permission.


This year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe slogan – “defying the norm since 1947” – might make for good marketing. But it hardly reflects the role of the world’s largest arts festival accurately. Far from suppo...

About Us


Nick Hennegan Hello. I'm Nick Hennegan and I started the London Literary Pub Crawl. Most of the blogs on here will be by me. I've always written but my first theatrical success was an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Henry V' (www.HenryVPlay.com) I founded Maverick Theatre in 1994. (www.MaverickTheatre.co.uk) This pub crawl is really more a promenade theatre performance than a tour and I'm running it with a bunch of enthusiastic local actors and writers. I love sharing my passion for the area and the artists. I also present a radio show on Resonance 104.4fm - London's Arts Station and a podcast on our site. If you haven't visited us in London yet, I hope you'll come soon. And feel free to leave comments or email me at nick @ LondonLiteraryPubCrawl.com - I reply to them all and I love to hear from you.
