This wonderful evening of entertainment has been running for nearly a year, I have known about it since last Autumn but have never been able to make the dates before tonight. Sadly they have lost the original venue and now like a roaming, travelling. great spectacular they are touring venues in Malvern for the next few dates!
Truth is a great Cabaret or Spoken Word event (or in my experience any club, group, or meet) is as strong as those who host, lead and organise the event to begin with. Confab will be fab and will go on, driven by Amy Rainbow, Catherine Crosswell and Myfanwy Fox.
This event attracts a massive audience (I think the biggest I have performed to yet) and the atmosphere is as divine as melted chocolate!
There were several more rows behind this too!
I had such a great night I am falling over my words, struggling to communicate how alive a night like tonight makes me feel. I am going to fall back on a world of synonyms and hope they convey the message!
Astonishing – astounding – awesome – fantastic – incredible – marvellous – spectacular – superb – terrific – peachy – rad – tops – wicked! (I am so glad I am only working a half day tomorrow and get a lie in!)
It was great to get a sign up 2 minute spot and share my poem ‘Honesty’. To meet my friend Ali again (from Custard Factory Writing Class), to know she has heard and enjoyed my poetry, to see other friends who have been off piste (off the circuit) for a while, to share all our good news face to face. Michelle Crosbie – is a headline act at Gary Longden’s gig Poetry Alight 9, this month (in 2 weeks) alongside Jo Bell and Matt Merritt. My Assistant Writer job – which starts this Saturday. New relationships. Birthdays recently celebrated….
I have had a wonderful evening, I am dancing on air – (imagination still running!) BIG thanks to everyone involved, everyone who came to talk to me about my performance.
And it’s not even Friday! 🙂
