Stockport hits its Peake

Northern actress and star of stage and screen Maxine Peake is coming to Stockport today (Thursday 3rd September 2015) to take part in a book reading.

The actress will be appearing with film director Carol Morley at the Seven Miles Out arts centre, on Market Place, for a reading of Carol’s debut novel – which is appropriately named ‘7 Miles Out’.

Carol, who was born and brought up in Stockport, wrote and directed ‘The Falling’, a 2014 film starring Maxine alongside Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams.

Last year she was the special guest at Screen Stockport Film Festival, which is directed by Joe Barratt, whose family also run Seven Miles Out.

Carol and Maxine will be at Seven Miles Out from 5.30pm today (Thursday, September 3), where Carol will also be signing copies of the book.
