First of all, a massive congratulations goes out to my team. Birmingham city for beating Arsenal in the cup final! I was there with 32000 Brummies and it was one of the proudest days of my life. Let’s just pray we can now stay in the league.

Monday 28th February I was nursing a hangover and about 4 hours sleep as I set off to Telford to do another day at John Randall School to get ready for the slam we would be holding.

Tuesday 1st I put on a 2 hour performance/chat and a workshop at Shire Oak school and then got the young people to perform at the end of the day to friends, teachers and even parents!

Wednesday the 2nd I was at Warren Farm Primary School helping the year 5 class get ready for their Romeo and Juliet music video. What fun that was!

Thursday the 3rd I was at Birmingham museum and art gallery with Bewdley School putting on quick fire half hour workshops where I got the young people battling with 3 words that I gave them to rhyme with.

Friday 4th world book day was celebrated at Dormston School where teachers and pupils came to school dressed as a book character. I held 1 hour workshops with the year 7s and 8s and also judged the winner for the fancy dress competition. I hope to go back there again in the future.

P.s more recent posts will be coming very soon!

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!
