You’re invited to join us at the King Charles the Martyr church in Tunbridge Wells as part of the Tunbridge Wells Poetry Festival for a powerful evening of poetry and performance…on Tuesday 24th August at 8pm (£10 tickets from the Festival website)
Remember the earth whose skin you are which features Roger West, performing a sequence of poems with impressive soundscapes ‘Consider the song of the cicadas’ and Steve Walter performing his long poem Gaia2020, both elegy and tribute to his late parents and Mother Earth.
Sounding notes of warning and love, Gaia 2020 is a moving addition to the rich and expanding literature of ecological concern.’
Carol Rumens, Professor of English Literature, Bangor University.
‘An incredibly thought-provoking poem. As a mental health charity, we are aware of the significance that nature plays in helping people feel better and re-take control of their lives after a mental health crisis. We are as much a part of nature, as nature is a part of us.’
Tunbridge Well’s Mayor’s Charity, Mental Health Resource.
For anyone and everyone concerned for the future of the planet
