Alarms & Excursions


"Clearly none of us had anticipated the degree and nature of the audience participation, but the combination of high art and mischief was quite brilliant. Truly joyful to be allowed/required to be disruptive...!"


Welcome to Alarms & Excursions. With the onset of autumn, 2017 continues to be an exciting year for the Spoken Word Supergroup. We completed our run supporting Beyond Platform-7 and Network Rail for London Bridge Live Station, with music by Cassie (guitar), Rosemary (Pipa), Alain English and Jazzman John Clarke (poetry, spoken word and storytelling), one of the highlights of this season being readings by Richard Blair, son of George Orwell.


Over 200 people turned up to experience our Remembrance Air Raid Put That Light Out! on 11th November in the Crystal Palace Subway, the first cultural event to take place in this iconic London space for over 30 years. With poems, stories, reminiscence, songs and classical music there was something for everyone. You can see the full programme on our  Provocations page shortly). There are several new projects on the stocks around the UK for 2018; the prospect of touring our existing work, appearances at festivals, competitions and loads more...
