The Lido's first writer in residence

Shelley Silas, who writes for theatre, radio and television, and has also written a number of short stories, will be writing at the Lido, every Monday from 2.30-4.30 in the cafe (or terrace!).  It gives her space away from home in an environment where she  often visits - be it the cafe and gym/pool.  

She is happy for people to come talk about anything - writing or life, her work, your work, the weather, swimming.  She's open to suggestions!

Shelley hopes that this will take off and other local artistes can be in residence.  But let's see how this goes first.
