Noir at the Bar, Edinburgh

The key aim of our Noir at the Bar is to bring together authors into a safe space where they can read from their latest work or work in progress. We also want to encourage readers to interact with the authors by asking questions and learning more about the reading.

Organised by the dynamic duo, Dr Noir aka Jacky Collins and Kelly Lacey. 

Jacky Collins has a long time love for all things crime fiction. Chairing fabulous events all across the UK and beyond. Jacky’s love and passion for promoting authors who don’t get the spotlight is insatiable. 

Kelly Lacey is a social networking machine that loves connecting people. Working in the publishing world with Love Books Tours. She works hard to bring author’s books to the world with successful publicity and promotional campaigns. Kelly is also an award-winning book reviewer at

This positive & supportive non-profit event will lift your spirits and increase your TBR pile for sure.
