Young Identity’s One Mic Stand, IV Slam Special at Contact Theatre

First time I actually made it down to Young Identity’s One Mic Stand, IV Slam Special featuring guest poets Tony Walsh and Mali Hayes at Contact Theatre, Manchester. If you haven’t been yet make sure you put the next one in for your diaries. Brilliant performances to include Elmi Ali, Reece Williams with his hat totally on point, Saquib Chowdhury, Keisha who was absolutely phenomenal and I even decided to test a new piece titled ‘A Muslim Mother’s Advice – How Not To Be A Terrorist’ on open-mic too.. 🙂 



on open-mic too…

North West Poets

In the first of a series of collaborative events with North West Poets and Lindsey Holland, founder member and leader of the group which profiles new emerging and established poets in the region, The Portico library hosted an evening of poetry where I had the pleasure of listening to my award winning module lecturer and poet Helen Mort, Andrew Forster and Ann and Peter Sansom. A beautiful setting with some inspirational poetry made for a fantastic evening.
