The final stretch before Christmas

The last little bit of work for 2010 is here.

Monday the 13th of December I’ve been to two schools holding workshops for the Worcestershire Young Poet Laureate competition. In the morning I was at Forest Oak before travelling to Stourport High school so fingers crossed the YPL will have a few more entries.  

Tuesday the 14th I’m at the MAC holding an all day workshop trying to build the confidence and inspire the pupils of Virtual College. Let’s hope I get them all up to the front performing their work.

Wednesday the 15th I finish off for Christmas at the council house performing at another ‘chance to shine’ tea party – with a Christmas theme!

So here it is. The final date of my first tour is now here. It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes since we were kicking off in Newcastle. But it’s actually been 2 months and now the last gig is upon us. In Birmingham! My home city. Lets hope the place is buzzing to get our spoken word artists really in the mood.

There’s 4 amazing poets (and myself) performing at the MAC (Midlands Art Centre) in Cannon Hill Park, B12 9QH on Thursday the 9th of December and you’re all invited! Please come and check it out and enjoy some spoken word greatness.

Tickets are £5 if you are 16 or below. 60 or above or a university student. If you are non of those and you can’t blag it then tickets are £7.

The performances start at 7.30pm so please if you could be there for 7pm that would be ace!

I hope to see you tomorrow and lets hope there are many more tours to come in the future!
