Bad Idea - The Butcher's Shop at the Old Operating Theatre Museum


I am typing this at the first Butcher's Shop event at the Old Operating Theatre Museum. The idea is Bad Idea's - a magazine for new writing. They are using the Museum amphitheatre to hold at interactive editing session. Writers submit their prose to be editing live in front on a audience. The event is sponsored by Hendrick's Gin - the Gin is Delicious and what is interesting is that it is made using quite a lot of ingredients which were used in the 19th Century St Thomas Hospital - juniper and meadow sweet for example.

I saw a couple of sections of the editing and they made it fun - so it became performative rather than academic. I can't say how good the learning was but the entertainment was high and those leaving were very complimentary - they loved the space and they enjoyed the evening.
