Standard

I was invited to be part of this fundraiser but sadly was unavailable. Apologies for not sharing the online version in a timely manner.

But if you are in the West Midlands region head to The Rep this Friday for the LIVE fundraiser event.

In the dark times

Will there also be singing?

Yes, there will also be singing.

About the dark times.” ― Bertolt Brecht

Join us for an evening of poetry to raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Poets, come along with short poems to read. Poetry lovers, join us to hear poetry that shares our deep concern.

Children affected by conflict in eastern Ukraine are using poetry to call for peace.

An end to six years of violence is more important than ever.
