We can’t CARRIE on like this, IT is time to take a STAND and put you out of your MISERY by announcing that on Friday the 13th of October we’ll be cracking the spines and SHINING a light on the twisted horrors that lurk within the pages of Stephen’s King’s books.
Our life models will portray the characters that feature in your NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES posing for a STEVENING of sketching pleasure in our own REDRUM down in The Basement Bar at City Screen. We don’t care if you are an APT PUPIL or if you feel more like a member of THE LOSER’S CLUB when you get your sketch on – all artistic abilities are welcomed here. Everything you need to get started creating your own gory masterpiece will be there ready and waiting if you dare to enter CASTLE ROCK!
We’ll be searching for THE DARK TOWER, laying CUJO to rest in our PET SEMATERY, walking THE GREEN MILE, and seriously hoping that THE TOMMYKNOCKERS won’t be knocking on the door…

At Dr Sketchy’s we seek to shake up the traditional life drawing experience– there will be no-one telling you how to draw, what to draw with or at what pace. We celebrate drawing the way you've always wanted to. We're not a serious art class, just a lot of Art Monkeys giving it a go in a relaxed atmosphere.
We love audience input and involvement. Please let us know what you think, and what themes you would like.

EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE 2017
The star of the award-nominated Mae Martin’s Guide to 21st Century Sexuality (BBC Radio Four) and her own stand-up special (Comedy Central) examines a lifetime of obsessions, fandom and addiction with ‘effortlessly amusing, highly watchable charm’ (Times).
MAE MARTIN shines a light on that one weird shrimp we all have in our brains that is happy to pursue short-term pleasure, despite knowing the long-term negative consequences. She asks: who are we when we’re not addicted?
‘Likeable and thoughtful – her funniest and frankest show yet’
‘Hopeful and joyous… I didn’t want the hour to end’
‘Her best set yet – will have you hooked from start to finish’
‘A breath of fresh air’
