I have been performing poetry in Preston and the surrounding area since 2012 both solo and with the performance groups Guests of the Earth, Poets and a Stage, and 4Poets. Events I have participated in include ‘Penwortham Live’, ‘Chorley What’s Your Story?’, ‘Poets Take Over the Harris’ in co-operation with the National Portrait Gallery, and ‘Harris Flights’. I regularly perform and MC at the monthly Damson Poets events.
I also give talks and workshops at conferences and camps across the North West and online on poetry as way of connecting with the landscape, devotional poetry, folklore, and British mythology and gods and goddesses. Examples include: ‘Voicing Place’, ‘Lancashire Folklore’, ‘Ancient British Gods and Goddesses’, and ‘Gwyn ap Nudd: King of Annwn’.
