It should be a great afternoon and evening at the Hadleigh Poetry and Music Day on Saturday May 20th, at the Ansell Centre, Hadleigh.

The afternoon session starts at 3pm, when you’ll be treated to Andy Jennings reading ‘The Iron Bridge’, the story of Lowestoft in poetry, followed by the funny and wry songs of Kath Tate, and finishing with Martin Newell reading his poems ‘Black Shuck’ and ‘The Green Children’ accompanied by original music from The Hosepipe Band.

The evening’s entertainment is music from The John Ward Trio, Park and Ride and Martin Newell, finishing with a headline spot from Attila the Stockbroker performing his poems, stories and a few songs accompanied by ‘thrash mandola’. You will also hear the first public performance of ‘She Lit the Fire’, a song about the Burston School Strike, written by Simon Haines and sung by Megan Wisdom.

Details are available on www.hadleighfolk.org.uk.

Tickets are available for afternoon, evening or a special price for both.

I’ll be cycling there. Let me know if you’re going to either part and I’ll look out for you (07904198649).
