Bright Scarf Poets at Poetry Cafe’ (October 6)

“Peter Pegnall’s Bright Scarf poets harmonise and clash, paint with their voices, dance with their words

Unfortunately, Peter himself was unable to be there because of a chest infection. Colin Pink stood in for him and delighted us all with his mixture of very funny and more serious verses, and joined Rosie’s 17-syllable non-haiku sequences (funny, sensual), Dominic’s more intimate poems and Quentin’s erudite and witty ones.

A very special evening indeed, rewarding the audience for braving a horribly wet night.

ONE YEAR ON – Thursday March 25 at 7.30 on Zoom

A year of lockdowns, tiers, brief respites, losses and resilience – and yet it’s flown, thanks partly to Zoom and the internet in general. We’ve all become more adept at technology, baking, entertaining ourselves and making do, maybe even at realising what’s not essential and can be let go of…

The event is still at its planning stage but what is certain is that Jacqueline Saphra, Alex Josephy, Rosie Johnston, Colin Pink and Rob Walton will be offering their unique takes on these last weird twelve months.
