Hosting and organising the Brighter Days Tour has been one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had. Sharing my poems in three cities which have all played host to some significant moments in my life (and in the creation of Dark Nights into Brighter Days) alongside some truly amazing guest performers has been so special.
The Brighter Days Tour has also taught me a great deal about myself and the journey I've been on to create Dark Nights into Brighter Days. Let me explain...
The third and final stop on the Brighter Days Tour saw me return to my university city of Coventry. The city has some significant memories for me, most of which are good but others are more difficult.
The venue, Shop Front Theatre, was just a stone's throw from my old student accommodation and the three performers who joined me - Fay Whitfield, Helen McCarthy, and Seline Cornfield - wowed the crowd. So, for the final time, here is another Brighter Days round-up!
The next leg of the Brighter Days Tour saw me return to my home county of Leicestershire. Despite moving over a year ago, Leicestershire still holds a special place in my heart and always will. So, it was only right that it was the next stop on the tour!
Fearon Hall in Loughborough was the setting with its beautiful ballroom playing host to three fantastic performers. Charlie Staunton, Fay Whitfield, and Leanne Moden, all took to the stage with their breathtaking sets. Take a look at the poets in action!
