April this year was especially quiet what with Easter AND a royal wedding all in the same month. But here are one or two things I got up to, to keep me ticking over.  

Thursday 14th I got the train down toReading for a workshop at HMP young offenders. I was a bit apprehensive before the day started but what a fantastic, eye opening experience that turned out to be. I loved every second of it and I believe the young men did too. Some seriously inspiring, touching and personal pieces came from that workshop and I hope to get the poems on my website in the future. They all had the talent and capability so I just hope they use that to help better the rest of their lives!

Friday 15th I was at the MAC for another workshop getting me ready for the ‘lit fuse’ performance the next day! On the night time I was fighting. And again, I won.

Saturday 16th I was at the MAC tying up loose ends for my performance later on in the evening. It was pretty much a full house and thank you to every body that turned up. I loved it!

Monday the 21st of March (which was national children’s poetry day) I was at Hazel Oak School in Shirley getting their young people to write poems around the theme of ‘horizon.’ These poems were for a competition and I have since been informed that 5 of their pupils have made the final so a massive well done to them! I’m chuffed to bits for them.

Thursday 24th I was at Chandos Primary School performing for all juniors and then holding a workshop with year 6s. I’m back to do a slam with them in June.

Friday 25th I was back in Telford holding another workshop at John Randall.

Sunday 27th I was at the MAC all day taking part in a workshop to get me ready for the ‘lit fuse’ performance on the 16th of April. Following that workshop I drove down to Wycombe to perform at a slam there.

Don’t forget, tonight!!! The 16th of April – It’s ‘lit fuse’ at the MAC in cannon hill park. I’m performing a new piece about Leonidas and the 300 Spartans fighting the Persians in 480BC and flashing back to make modern day comparisons. If you’ve got the film 300 watch it before you come! It starts at 7.30pm and we will finish about half 8/9. SEE YOU THERE!

Details of my work from the last month will be coming very soon!!!
