A lively mix of music, photography, spoken word and film is the recipe for the first Wired In event of 2013.

The event takes place in The Round at The Dukes in Lancaster on March 11 from 7pm.

Poet Laureate of the north Mike Garry makes a return to Wired In this month.

The Manchester-based poet, who has been performing since 1995, will be focusing on the beautiful ugliness of his home city and its people.

He has recently toured with John Cooper Clark.

Another Manchester photographer, Karin Albinsson, will be showing and talking about her photographic work.

Her current project Ten Mancs includes portraits of Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Anthony H Wilson, Clint Boon, Shaun Ryder and Johnny Marr, and she will also be displaying her stunning travel photography of Morocco and Iceland.

Other photographers on the night include Mollie George Bland, Karen Chandisingh and Richard Davis.

All images will be accompanied by live music soundtracks provided by the bands Cat Skeleton, The Steve Varden Experience and for one night only a special collaboration between Pete Moser, Jane Lawrence and Matt Robinson.

The evening will close with a short film by Martin Taylor called Berocca, a tale about a disabled salesman and his autistic son who travel the backroads of Northern England.

Most of the film was shot in Morecambe.

Entry is £3, and tickets are available from the Dukes Box Office, 01524 598500. For more information visit www.totallywired.org.uk.
