Things We Should Have Said

Guest Poet: Things We Should Have Said

A return to Words & Ears of the wonderful, 'spontaneous poetry exchange', Things We Should Have Said, conceived by Stuart Silver and featuring a 'team' of poets performing their work in response to each other, in an unrehearsed, impromptu and mesmerising way, as we discovered when they visited us in June 2019. The line-up of poets is different each time, and we will announce who we have in store for you this month closer to the event. In June 2019, the performance was "spellbinding, moving from the funny to the chilling and back again with a sense of disarming honesty and humanity... a breath of fresh air." Can't wait for their return.

17th December 2020, The Swan Hotel, Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire BA15 1LN

7:30pm - 10:00pm.

Come and join us at Bradford on Avon's popular reading series, Words & Ears for this Christmas special event. Bring a poem, story or song to share, or just bring yourself. All performers and listeners welcome: open mic slots always available. £5 on the door.
