Pretty Literary Pub of the Week.

A great, friendly little pub in the little Welsh Village of Llanon. Mainly locals, with a smattering of holidaymakers, the food is good value for money, the staff universally friendly and the wifi strong for those research/download/upload moments.More

Nick after a night out.

Nick Hennegan


Nick Hennegan was born in Birmingham, England.

His Mom said he was, “more trouble than all her other kids put together.”

He felt sorry for his Mom.  Being from a council estate housing project his career choices were limited.  He tried to do the right thing for his Mom and get a proper job after he left school at 15, but his Dad’s factory closed and everyone got laid off, so he tried other things.

Now he mainly writes stuff.  Although he set up the Maverick Theatre Company on his old council estate in Birmingham to encourage new audiences to try theatre. And he was the first in his family to eventually get to university and now has an M.A. in Creative Producing.  And he’s won a few awards directing. And worked at Shakepeare’s Globe.  And won a bursary from The Society of London Theatre for producing.  And a Guiness Award through the Royal National Theatre. And A Sony Radio Award.  And he was nomintated for ‘Creative Briton’.  And ‘Midlander of The Year‘.  And his Shakespearean adaptations have received rave reviews around the world. And his last screenplay was voted one of the top 20 in the UK. And he has a weekly radio show on Resonance 104.4fm. And his podcast was voted No 2 Top Bohemian Podcast on the web!

His Mom might think this is showing off a bit, but Nick is quite relieved the factory route was shut off for him after school.
