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.



A busy summer 2024 schedule...


2024 got off to an amazing start for us, with Steve Tasane touring his show for kids Ten in the Bed, in partnership with Half Moon Theatre. Isabel has been headlining many events in and around the South West, commencing wiith four seasonal events in Clevedon and supporting the amazing Liz Berry (winner of the Writers' Prize for Home Child) at Clevedon Litfest with the results of her 8 month residency with photogrpaher Jo Shepherd in Goblin Combe, (hardback book now available - see the publications page). She will be touring her Phantastic Ekphrastic show to the RIBA Award winning East Quay Gallery in Watchet, Somerset in late June.


There are also plans afoot for a major new programme of events following her recent tour to Chicago and Detroit -  more details anon.


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.
