We Shall Overcome!

Come and join us at the next Verse Matters at the Moor Theatre Delicatessen on Thursday 6 October. It’s a special event for We Shall Overcome – a nationwide movment of artists, musicians and community organisers to protest against austerity and support those affected. It’s also National Poetry Day so what could be more auspicious! All cash donations will be donated to the Archer Project in Sheffield and we will be collecting food/ sanitary products for the S2 Food Bank as always.

There will be brilliant poetry from Suzannah Evans (Poet), Norah Hamill (Poet), Ray Garner (Poet) and Kevin Titterton (poet) and fab music from Speed For Lovers

There will also be great open mic performances from Cora GreenhillAnamoli Meraki (poet), Sez Thomasin (poet), Joe O’Brien (poet) and Cherry Barham (poet)

Some of our performers tell stories that are marginalised by society: refugees, detainees, prisoners. Others speak in public for the first time. Others are experienced poets, dramatists and performers. All are respected and appreciated.

Cost: Pay what you can (suggested donation £3) – all proceeds to the Archer Project, Sheffield.

We look forward to welcoming you to Verse Matters!
