Take Notice – an evening of spoken word
Sat 26 September 2020 at 5pm
This year, many of us have noticed the world around us more intently.
Valley Arts’ first live poetry event since lockdown is inspired by one of the New Economics Foundation’s ‘five ways to wellbeing’.
Poetry helps us to appreciate our environment and record our experiences, from the smallest everyday moments to life-changing events.
Join us for a poetic, socially-distanced event in a fairy-lit marquee. The event will also be available online, with very limited live audience spaces.
Our guest poets will be performing live for the first time since lockdown, so this is a fantastic opportunity to see nationally-acclaimed writers and performers.
Audience members will also be invited to share their own anecdotes, stories or poems about an aspect of the world that they have noticed recently. Please email email@example.com to put your name in the hat.
The evening will be hosted by Chew Valley’s own Beth Calverley.
Valley Arts are very pleased to be able to bring you this show for free, but we would greately appreciate it if you feel you can make a donation to help us bring more fabulous live performance to the Chew Valley. Our recommended donation is £15 per person. Please donate here www.peoplesfundraising.com/donation/ValleyArts
This is an outdoor event with overhead cover. Please bring your own camping/portable chair and please wear a mask. There will be no toilet facilities and no refreshments.
The event will last about one hour 15 mins.
This is an organised event following Government guidelines. A full risk assessment has been conducted and social distancing regulations will be observed.
