Leeds for Europe Conference Social. 7/9/19

posted in: News | 0

I had a whale of a time performing for Leeds For Europe. Their conference featured some political big-hitters: Hillary Benn, Caroline Lucas, Michael Heseltine and, (my personal fave), Magid Magid.

However, none of them stayed for my performance which gave me my greatest pleasure as a hack poet, which is to see people’s faces go from dread to disbelief to a smile that, (in my head at least), says “Is this poetry?”

I’m really glad I did it, you have to get off the fence sometimes, thanks to Caroline Anstey for thinking of me.

If you’re interested in what they do, (and you’re not a Brexit bot), here’s a link to their twitter.
