Join our new Cuckoo Group in South Shields

You might have noticed there’s a shiny new library in town and we’re taking over the Catherine Cookson room in The Word every Saturday from 2-4pm starting back 14th January 2017.



We’re also offering free taster sessions to local schools in the area so we can show you all how brilliant our weekly workshops are so if you go to school in South Tyneside tell your teachers to get in touch!


Come along and channel your inner Stephen King to explore Dark Fiction with Matt Wesolowski and James Whitman.

Matt’s horrifying Dark Fiction workshop has been so popular with our Durham group that we’ve asked him to make the journey to sunny South Shields to cast some shadows! 

Think horror and dystopian futures and create your own dark fiction. This is our brand new Cuckoo group so if you’ve never been to a group before we’d love to see you there!

Don’t forget we have FIVE other Cuckoo groups across the North East. You can check them out here.

All groups are free to join and you can attend as many or as few sessions as you want.

For more information on our new group or anything else Cuckoo related you can email Rachael at
