In light of COVID-19, Beach Creative will remain closed until further notice.


Some of our wonderful workshop leaders have started to work online. Check the new page titled 'VIRTUAL' on our website for more details!

All of our physical workshops, classes & events have been suspended. Please check back in the near future to see updates.


Sketch Jam ONLINE with Beach Creative. 

Live Jazz and Artist's Poses to Draw/Paint/Sketch

Sunday July 5th from 6:30-8:00pm with post-show 'drinks' 

Tickets here:

This live jazz gig with jazz singer Kai Hoffman and Friends is held on Zoom, with specially created backdrops and poses to draw/paint/sketch. You can just hang out and listen too of course! Check Kai's singing out here



On Sunday 28th June we are repeating the experience, except with fresh words, more people & extra gusto!


My regular, monthly spoken word for poetry & short prose is on again this Sunday night. 


Running out of Beach Creative CIC for the past 3 years, SOUND LINES SPOKEN WORD continues online for now. All lovers of live-lit are welcome - whether to listen; share favourite pieces by other writers; or to perform their own.


This is a 2 hour open mic and so how much you read will depend upon how many people attend & want to read. We usually get to share 2 pieces but sometimes more so bring a few spares. :-) 


Should you wish to attend, please let me know & I will send you a ZOOM link over the weekend, usually on Sunday, as I wait for everyone to get in touch then send it out in 1 go. 


Please note: A regular attendee from Day 1 of SLSW was Janet Cook, - musician, educator, traveller, artist, writer & so much more.


Sadly Jan is now no longer with us but her good humour, energy, intellect & generous personality will stay with anyone who knew her from Beach Creative CIC Writers, gigs, SLSW or from coming into contact with her via her many roles over the years. As such, if anyone would like to share memories of Jan or her words as part of Sunday's open mic, please feel free to do so as a celebration of her life.


NB: this is a paid event, at a cost of £5 & attendees will be sent an invoice after the event.
