There is literally no way to be modest about this. Everybody absolutely CRUSHED IT!
The night started with people pouring through the glass and wooden revolving door of The Old White Lion, Bury. Before we knew it we were faced with over 40 people, expectant and excited for some spoken word of the highest calibre and they were not disappointed.
We began with our first group of open mic slots which were filled by the following wonderful people:
There was as always, a wonderfully eclectic display of pieces from all which set the tone for the evening and also sent the audience wild with anticipation for the first of our headliners, the extremely talented Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin.
A natural showman, his set was energetic, tenderly written and exceptionally funny with topics ranging from Royal Panto to Pigeons and much more. The entire room erupted with laughter and applause.
He also promises to defiantly come back and perform with us again in the not too distant future. This makes us very happy bunnies indeed.
After that stunning performance, we took a break to prepare for more greatness in the second half which opened with the completely wonderful Danny Murphy which, in his own words, just really likes poems and boy does he write excellence.
With humour and jolliness in every word, his set simply burst with cheekiness and fabulously penned pieces with each poem leaving the audience wanting more and he obliged.
The fantastic news is that he’s coming back too at some point in the future! Superb or what?!
To finish, we had another set of open mic performers, starting with a touch of ‘Sit Down’ comedy from Matthew Hadfield. All of the performers we had were incredible. And who were these legends? I hear you cry. They were the following, I reply:
We had a truly wonderful night and we wish you could have been there.
The next event is on the 27th. Our headliners are Fiona Nuttall and Benjamin Guifoyle and they will be awesomely amazing so see you there?
