Manchester: one week to go!

Yep, it’s come around quickly – there’s only one week to go before we take Oh Dear Diary to Manchester!

We’ll be at Gullivers, on Oldham Street in the Northern Quarter, from 7.30 on Tuesday 14th July and you can buy advance tickets here.

Our readers have already started gnawing their knuckles as they wait to share their diaries. We’ve seen a few of the things they’re planning to read and to be honest we’re already cringing ourselves – the topics include annoying friends, snogging traumas and awful family holidays, to name a few.

Basically, if you were ever a teenager, you’ll find something familiar at Oh Dear Diary. Come along and share our teenage woes!

Oh Dear Diary… in Manchester!

That’s right, Oh Dear Diary is going on tour!

We’re really excited to announce that the first North West Oh Dear Diary will take place on July 14th at Gullivers on Oldham Street (in Manchester’s Northern Quarter), and you can buy tickets here.

If think you might be up for reading your diary, you can find the details at the bottom of this post.

Now, I’ve never actually been to Manchester (say whaaat?) so I’ve enlisted the help of Tess from the wonderful If Destroyed Still True to be our Northern Correspondent. She’s been just brilliant so far, finding us a venue, putting the word about, and even liaising with the Greater Manchester Fringe to make Oh Dear Diary part of the festival in July.

I know, right?! It’s almost like we’re a professional show!


Now for the important bit…

Readers wanted

Did you keep a diary as a teenager? Have you still got it?

If you still have a diary from between the ages of about 12 and 20 and think you might be up for reading some of it to a small and very appreciative audience, we’d love to hear from you.

To find out more (don’t worry, we won’t commit you to anything until we’ve had a proper chat), email, or get in touch on Twitter or Facebook.
