Ready to crack another case? Then you’re in luck. An East London bar is hosting a live screening of True Detective, offering fans the chance to speculate just who-done-it.

The new series has an all-new cast, an all-new case but has the same eerie atmosphere and structure of detectives solving an eerie murder.

Projected onto a big screen, two-for-one cocktails are on hand to help solve the riddle..

3. HAVE YOU GOT A STORY TO TELL?

Much-loved New York radio show The Moth is coming to London – with a simple structure. The best storyteller each night wins a prize to complete in a GrandSLAM Championship later this year.

This week’s event has a theme around ‘balance’. Each story must involve ways of coping, not “succumbing to the jolts, pushes and indulgences that can throw life off kilter.”

Whatever the theme, the organisers promise exhilarating, beautifully told and enlightening stories. It’s time to share.

WHERE? The Book Club, Shoreditch
WHEN? Wednesday July 1st
