Happy International Women’s Day!

I’m off soon to Faversham in north Kent (UK) to take part in the Finale of a magnificent whole week of International Women’s Day events, organised by Angela Dye. We’ll be in the Guildhall, a magnificent hall built in 1574. Its impressive, wood-panelled interior lists all the town’s mayors from 1550,  all male of course until you reach Florence Graham in 1956.  It feels like an appropriate place for us all to gather and salute her memory.

International Women’s Day – Faversham Guildhall, Kent

Faversham is celebrating International Women’s Day with an impressive whole week of events, dozens of them, organised by Angela Dye. It culminates in a Finale this coming Friday, between 7 pm and 10.30pm, in the town’s Guildhall and I’m thrilled to be one of their ‘Special Guest poets’.

As well as wonderful musical and comedy acts, there will be an open mic for musicians and poets to perform poems created through the festival or their own material. This is a free event with wine and canapes also provided free by the generous George Inn in Newnham. See you there!
