The first of two ‘Poetry Lunches’ programmed as part of Poetry International 2010 launched today at 1pm in Central Bar of the Royal Festival Hall. With a mixture of voices, both new and emerging, the event moved across the globe dealing with issues of war and peace, conflict and resolution. From Northern Ireland to Sudan, Kurdistan to Palestine, Yugoslavia to our own homes, images were conjured up and stories shared. For a mid-week, middle of the day event the crowd was both buoyant and enthusiastic, eagerly awaiting the next poet. We even had one of our young bloggers turn up and perform!
If you missed it today then come along to tomorrow’s session hosted by Remi Kanazi (1pm Central Bar, RFH, November 5th). If today is anything to go by then it looks set to be a good one.
