“This is more than a poetry evening, it is an entertainment”

20 attended the February’s Spoken Word and Poetry Performance evening and 10 performed a huge range stories and poems, ranging from former lecturer Tony Morrison, who certainly knew how to hold the floor, to first time performer Tess Tibbits. Tony read the first poem he recalled from school days, candidly written about the glory of dying for one’s country by Wilfred Owens, who soon after experienced that so called ‘glory’. Tony said of the evening “This is more than a poetry evening, it is an entertainment.”
The next event is on Saturday April 10th, 6-8pm at Magnify Church Cafe, 118 Commercial Road. All are welcome to share a poem or story. Original works or ones that have made an impression on you. $3 cover charge. Bring a plate. More info? Email Pauline paulinekiwidenton@gmail.com
