A very pleasant evening at the Gateway Church. Mary who mc'd and read from her own work as well as acting a comedy sketch with another lady, was very encouraging to poets and musicians experienced and not so.
Due to the new nature of this event I was able to read from one of my longer poems and enjoyed the practice.There was a break for coffee and biscuits(free as well as free entry)then I was able to read from my shorter poem Brown & Co about Baron Von Richthofen.
To conclude proceedings Mary gave a powerpoint account of the life of St Valentine from Ancient Roman times. This was a charming and topical way to top off a great evening.I shall most definitely go again.
