Off The Page: extra events announced

Dean Blunt, Marisa Anderson and Jonny Trunk have been added to the programme for the fourth edition of The Wire’s Off The Page festival.

On the Sunday of the festival, which takes place at Bristol’s Arnolfini over the weekend of 26–28 September, Blunt will present “Black Metal”: A Reading. As with his recent sold out Free Jazz performance at London’s Cafe Oto, no other details as to the nature or format of the reading will be forthcoming prior to the event itself.

Meanwhile, later on the Sunday, Marisa Anderson will headline a special Off The Page closing concert at Bristol’s Cube cinema which will also feature cellist and Earth member Lori Goldston and Brian Mumform's Dragging An Ox Through Water. Shifting musical gears somewhat, Jonny Trunk will once again be on hand as Off The Page’s resident DJ, spinning his patented selection of audio esoterica in the Arnolfini bar for the duration of the festival.

A full breakdown of all confirmed Off The Page talks, speakers and events has just gone up on the Arnolfini website. Details of the closing concert at the Cube are here.
