FORKED

Spoken word artists, poetry films and exceptionally entertaining cabaret join forces to explore the theme of LOVE in all its guises.

Featuring:

Spoken Word:

Queen of nourishing words and founder of the Poetry Machine; Beth Calverley.

Beth finds words for the unspoken, telling true stories of resilience and hope. Through pin-point imagery, she draws her listeners into a world of dreaming waves, rural memories and smiling witchcraft. “Beth has the innate ability to capture a feeling and make you feel safe within it. If poetry could hold your hand, this is what it would feel like” – Malaika Kegode.

Beth was the inaugural Gloucester Regional Roundhouse Slam Winner and went on to compete in the Roundhouse Final 2018.
