  • To celebrate the end of our lovely Zoom shows we have a headline spot from the wonderful "mesmerising" Rebecca Tantony, live from Cornwall. 
  • The Word/Play group will perform
  • There will be an open mic with spots available for anyone with an original poem to share. (Book with Liv early to get on the bill.)
  • We will be making an audience poem live on the night
  • Bring your own shakers, if you like, and adorn yourself with a Rainbow Fish theme, If you are bored and want an excuse to dress up… so we can create a ‘we are all shaking together’ atmosphere

The show comes out of Take Art's 'performance poetry on prescription' Word/Play project, which helps adults with mental health or learning challenges find new ways to talk about their lives.
