Rivelin Valley Heritage Open Day: an Open Mic Poetry Walk with Fay Musselwhite
Meet from 1.30pm at Rivelin Park Cafe, 72 Rivelin Park Rd, Sheffield S6 5FE
Sunday 19 September 2021 | 2pm start | Free (booking essential)
As part of Rivelin Valley Conservation Group’s (RVCG) Heritage Open Day, poet Fay Musselwhite will lead an open mic poetry walk on the banks of the River Rivelin. The walk will start at 2pm, departing from the area in front of Rivelin Park café; participants should aim to arrive here by 1.30pm, so that Fay can finalise a running order.
If you’d like to take part, choose a poem of 2-3 minutes’ length, written either by you or someone else, and begin practising. You are welcome to respond to the theme of ‘foraging’ which runs through the event; alternatively, bring whatever poetry you feel like reading out on the banks of the Rivelin. The walk will be on the river path. There might be mud, steps and the occasional tree root, but it won’t be arduous.
The event is free, but places are limited; advance booking is essential. Please click here to book via Eventbrite (and select the 2pm option for the open mic). If you have any queries (and/or would like to let Fay know which poem you will be reading), please email Fay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
