Join Yorkshire troupe A Firm of Poets for an evening of spoken word at Ropery Hall
Poetry buffs have the ideal opportunity to show off their talents when A Firm of Poets comes to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall on Saturday (Nov 7)
The show, part of a new series of literature events organised by Northern Accent, sees a quartet of poets facing the audience as, in turn, they step up to the mic to perform their poems
Ralph Dartford, Matt Abbott, John Darwin and Geneviève L. Walsh will each took turns in stepping forward to present their distinctive poetic style,
“This is a cross between a poetic super-group and Whose Line Is It Anyway?” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “The show promises to be fast paced with humour, pathos, quizzes and audience participation.”
“It is a fun night out that will both move and entertain,” she went on. “As part of the show, participants are invited to submit one of their poems to an online document The People’s Republic Of Poetry which is growing as the tour makes its way around the country.”
Even better there is a free pre-show workshop starting at 4pm to the first 10 ticket holders to book their place. Those taking part in this workshop are asked to bring two short poems to the workshop.
At the workshop participants will be able to hone their performance skills and then join the Firm of Poets on stage for the evening’s performance.
The evening starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10 in advance or £12 on the door. Tickets can be purchased at www.roperyhall.co.uk, by telephoning 01652 660380 or by calling into the Craft Gallery
