What a delight to perform in the Spanish City Dome’s ballroom last night as part of the Under the Dome Festival which runs until the 27th of July http://www.under-the-dome.org/


I really enjoyed performing alongside poets Harry Gallagher, Mandy Maxwell and Sarah Hammersley plus the wonderful Bay Vox Choir. The audience were appreciative and it was great to see plenty of familiar, smiling faces. Thanks for listening!


One of the poems I shared was a haiku written by the Dome’s only residents, Isadora and Nigella the dancing ladies. They are miffed that they never get asked what they would like to see the Dome become. They would love to see it used like Bexhill on Sea’s De La Warr Pavilion for exhibitions, live music and workshops. The gals would also like to see a cinema plus the ballroom restored to its former glory so they could use it through the night for free.
