2019 Readings and events

Poetry Reading and Open-Mic at The Vaults, Devizes on Sunday 16th June 5pm – 7pm as part of Devizes Fringe Arts Festival.  More details soon. Save the date.


Congratulations and thanks to Lucy English and Danny Pandolfi, co-directors of Lyra Bristol Poetry Festival, and Tom Sastry, Poet in Residence, for an inspiring and hugely enjoyable festival in Bristol, 20th – 24th March.  I was honoured to take part in a discussion panel about Page and Spoken Word Poetry and I loved being in the audience for lots of other events.  I’m already looking forward to next year.

Thank you to HappenStance poet Stephen Payne for asking me to read with him in Bath for Poetry and a Pint on March 20.  It was a small but extremely lovely audience.

I had a terrific time reading at Penarth Acoustic Club last Friday, 15 March.  Here’s a snippet from talented musicians The Shackleton Trio who shared a stage with me.

2018 Readings 

In 2018 I read at the Poetry Café in Frome; the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire; Ledbury Poetry Festival; Vanguard Reading Series, Peckham; Drawing Projects UK, Trowbridge; The Poetry Café, London; Words & Ears, Bradford on Avon; Uncut Poets, Exeter; Swindon Poetry Festival, That’s What She Said, Bristol, and at the wonderful Poetry in Aldeburgh Festival.

Thank you to everyone who invited me to read this year, and to everyone who was in the audience.  I couldn’t have wished for more welcoming, listening audiences or for kinder festival and reading organisers.
