WELL FURNISHED WITH POETS!

Richard Tyrone Jones wows the packed crowd at our inaugural ‘WellFurnished With Poets’

Our first spoken word event took place on Friday 10th June with over a dozen performers taking the floor – including turns from inhouse comperes Catherine Brogan, Furious George and the Captain of the Rant getting things going. Also tearing things up were Alain English, Richard Tyrone Jones, Mel Jones (no relation), Dave Flores, Mooza Mohd, Stephanie Dogfoot, Charlie Dupre, Ofir of the Turbans, Olah Nora, with spontaenous interpretative dances and jam sessions bursting out in an epic poetry session that ran from 8pm until 1am!

Thanks to everyone who helped out and came along, it was totally bonobo.
