Poetry Night with Ralph Dartford

Poetry Night with Ralph Dartford

September 7, 2021 Off By admin

Join us for a night of poetry, spoken word and music hosted by Sharena Lee Satti and Spoke Poetry Hub!

‘We included everything we wanted to say without saying it.’ — Duke Ellington.

Hidden Music is a collection of poems that listens and responds to Ralph Dartford’s lifetime obsession with song, and which subsequently allows his singular poetic vision to take flight. From Nick Cave to Lee Morgan, and Ella Fitzgerald to Radiohead, these poems search and reveal the untold stories within a dyslexic and melodious imagination, and like the most intoxicating music, gifts ownership to both the listener and the reader.

Nicky Longthorne will also be sharing his moving work, exploring his struggles with his mental health.

There will be a limited number of 5 minute open mic slots available. Email a.corwin@kalasangam.org to put your name down and readers will be picked on the night.

7.30pm | Thu 2 Dec | Pay What You Decide

All our events are Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the event. We want to encourage more people to come and see events at Kala Sangam, more often.

Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for an event in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the event. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the event starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.

If you have ANY coronavirus symptoms, please DO NOT attend.

This event will take place following any social distancing requirements in place at the time.

Temperature checks, hand sanitisation and mask wearing will be used and encouraged where appropriate.
