Echoes: Words and Music for a Renewed Charlton House
Echoes, a fundraiser for Charlton House, London, featured Booker Prize winner and Woolwich native Bernardine Evaristo reading from her new memoir Manifesto, alongside poets and spoken word artists Steve Tasane, Mark ‘Mr T’ Thompson, and Isabel White. These remarkable artists united to help Greenwich Heritage in its work to conserve Charlton House for future generations. Supported by musicians Joanne Girdlestone and Malcolm McWatt, over 50 books were sold on the night, and the organisers hope to invite the authors back to do it all again soon.
Isabel's third collection - Scallywag - now on its second reprint - continues to sell well, with Isabel giving a reading at Waterstones Bristol City Centre in February. In the meantime, how about revisiting past glories while we prepare for our next show, which we promise will be even more amazing than the last! Check out the rest of the site, especially the poetry page, which shows you what we have been up to in 2022 and 2023.
Isabel will be partnering with Somerset based storyteller, Michael Loader, poets Alys Denny and Robin Kidson and a host of musicians to bring four seasonal events to Clevedon Litfest, the first of which will be on March 21st. Contact the Litfest or Theatre Shop in Clevedon for more details.
We have exciting plans for summer 2024 and beyond - too soon to spill the beans!
