A small review of a grand event.
In September Peter Sutton asked me to be a poet at his Elgar Poetry Event and I jumped at the chance. He then invited Lesley Ingram and Michael W. Thomas to complete the line up for the evening.

In October we all worked on our sets and Peter masterfully pulled the entire script together. I thoroughly enjoyed researching Elgar and relating my memories of him in poetry. I wrote 14 new poems for this commission and the remaining poems were recently written for the Unremembered Collection published by Black Pear Press and produced by Polly Stretton for The Living Memory Project.
Peter added poems from Elgar’s contemporaries and tied the performance together with facts and insights.
The event was held to raise funds for the Elgar Festival 2018 and took place at The Elgar School of Music in Worcester.
