Dave Viney Presents… Wild Things: Poets Let Loose
Embracing our ‘Wild’ theme, renowned Performance Poet and Host Dave Viney returns to the Carvetti Stage with another selection of outstanding spoken word artists. Poetry that resonates – funny, poignant and memorable. Definitely NO poems about daffodils, or windy walks. Headliner Tony Walsh who’s poem ‘This Is the Place’ epitomised the spirit of Manchester in aid of the Manchester bombing victims and their families. Not to be missed. (Contains some swearing).
