Words Aloud March 19th and beyond

It’s been going since 2014 and now with funding from Arts Network Sutton, Words Aloud moves downstairs to the bigger space of Sutton Central Library for Saturday afternoons with guests.

I host and promote these events and it’s been great to make new friends, meet new poets and storytellers and bring spoken word (by that I mean performance poetry, storytelling and everything in between) to Sutton.

Hope to see you there – it’s free with fab special guest comic storyteller Martha McBrier.

If you want to book a slot email me at wordsflyer@gmail.com

Win and Winchester

So I had the very good news that some of my comedy material has been broadcast on Newsjack Radio 4 Extra, this plus my sitcom in progress ‘Splittsville’ getting to the Finals of the Sitcom Trials is encouraging stuff!

Last week I was on Winchester Discovery Centre for their Children’s Book festival and what a fab time we had. The Strangest Sandwich Show is going great guns and we even had brothers in that sandwich! So much fun and making pizza poems later was a blast. If you’re round that way do visit the Discovery centre it’s a really cool library with some excellent events on.

Tea and Cake – sold out!! This Saturday’s going to be good

john hegleyWe are very pleased that Tea and Cake with John Hegley hosting two groups of adults and teens and poetry videos from Care Home residents is going to be sold out with a waiting list for tickets. I’m really proud to have facilitated such a great group of people to produce their responses to the work done in the Care Homes with residents and Robin Vaughan-Williams. We will hear group poems and individual poets work this Saturday at 2.30pm in Sutton Central Library. It’s been an intense process and I’m so pleased to be directing them to a polished performance piece in a very limited amount of time – they are all stars! The next Words Aloud is on November 5th so anyone wanting to share their work and get involved with such great opportunities going on in Sutton should come along at 7pm to Sutton Central Library.
