Join us at the Official Trawler Launch Party!

Join us at the Official Trawler Launch Party!

As a reader of our first issue of Trawler Paper we thought you’d be interested to know that it was a massive success. In fact it’s popularity has lead to us writing, photographing and designing Issue 2, and the good news is that it is being printed this month!

The Spring 2016 issue has even more pages and features an amazing range of articles as well as short stories, poetry, and beautiful photo essays

But That’s Not all…
To celebrate the second issue of Trawler we’re holding a Launch Party at the Leigh Community Centre on April 15th 2016 that you are invited to. 

As well as giving away copies of the paper we’ll also have an amazing range of talks given by a host of local talent – a Trawler version of Ted Talks if you will!

Six local adventurers, entrepreneurs, raconteurs and personalities will be giving incredible seven minute talks on everything from wine tasting to building bamboo bicycles to wild swimming.

The Fat Pig Of Rioja by Sam Brown
Owner of Vino Vero, Sam will tell his tale of hunting out some of the best wines in Europe and finding the fabled “Fat Pig”. You’ll also be able to taste this wine on the night! (Complimentary glass of wine included in ticket price).

Happy Wild Swimming by Paige Ockendon
Paige will be premiering her new short film “Happy Wild Swimming” and discussing the benefits of winter swimming in the Estuary

White Gold by Alex Storey
Alex weaves a jaw-dropping story of how the cotton trade is in desperate need of reform, and what we can do to help.

My Handmade Bike by Sam Gable
Sam is a 3D designer who built a bike…out of bamboo…and now plans to ride it to Amsterdam.

Life Is About The Journey…Isn’t It?
A humorous and blunt take on how our world view can change just by bumping into someone on the beach.

All Mouth And Trousers by Ryan Philpott
Ryan started his acting career in the hallowed halls of Leigh Community Centre, and is currently working at the BBC, listen as he regales us with tales of his journey.

As well as these amazing talks, local musician Dave Crix will be playing a live set, and Ray Morgan and Jo Overfield will be regaling us with poems of whimsy and wonder.

Alongside our amazing speakers we have live music from local troubadour 56 Special as well as some impromptu poetry from Sundown Arts. It’s set to be a night of interesting and varied entertainment that will also raise some money for a charitable cause (£5 from every ticket goes to https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/emma-woof)
