Arts Evening for the Billericay Art Trail

Next Saturday I will be giving a poetry reading as part of an Arts Evening for the Billericay Art Trail. A great, varied programme including poetry, music, digital projection, storytelling and dance has been arranged for the evening at St. Mary Magdalen Billericay

I am particularly looking forward to hearing Tim Cunningham again, as he has read previously at several events I have organised. Billericay-based Cunningham has been called the poet of good endings and his apposite phrases serve to illuminate the everyday encounters which characterise his poetry. He has had four collections of his poetry published: Don Marcelino's Daughter (2001), Unequal Thirds (2006), Kyrie (2008), and most recently Seige, published to coincide with his 70th birthday and consisting of a selection of visceral, roots poems taken from his three previous selections with a sprinkling of new work.

My fellow commission4mission member, Colin Burns, is also taking part. Combining classical and popular influences, guitarist/singer-songwriter Burns will play tracks from his debut album Emerald & Gold. This project brings together compositions from many years with the painter-turned-performer fusing instrumental dexterity and melodic poetry.

The evening also includes Reflection Dance, storytellers Colin Taylor and Pat Roberts, animations from Dezadie, plus images from the Big Draw event earlier in the day at Norsey Wood. The evening starts at 7:30pm.
