Manchester’s exciting spoken word scene sees one of its more off the wall nights return this month at Fab Cafe. All pieces hang on sci-fi and pop cultural befitting of Manchester’s most prominently geeky venue – but there’s certainly no attempt to put off those not normally of a sci-fi bent with the theme being given a very broad interpretation. Expect a varied collection of short story writers and poets, all with their own interpretation of the theme, held together by the hosting talents of Anna Percy (pictured), a name familiar to regulars at spoken word events in Manchester. If you’re looking for a way to battle through a dreary January Sunday evening then you can do much worse than a raucous night of spoken word with a beer or two.

Sun 6 Jan, Fab Cafe, 111 Portland Street, M1 4RJ, 7.30pm, £1,
