Event description

Description

Book your bus ride of fenland discovery to listen to the words of Keely and Charley and 6 new female poets as you experience the landscape from which the work was born.

Pick up from St.Johns Square. Booking esseential as very limited places.

A mentoring residency with 6 new female poets from Peterborough, Keely and Charley will write their stories of Peterborough’s backbone of seasonal workers; pickers, pluckers, and packers. The poets will explore the role of the seasonal and migrant worker in the city - how this has affected them as individuals and as a community over the last 100 years. They will write poems on what Peterborough will or could be post-brexit, and how the female role is represented in all of this. The work created from the residency will result in a one-off installation that the audience can experience at two different events. Will you notice the t-shirts, tote bags, and a mini-bus?

The Pickers,Pluckers and Packers poets will be performing at Planet B events Question Time Cabaret and Write Club, so please look out for info on those.
