If you happen to be free on the evening of Saturday 22nd March 2008 and if you're in the North Wales or West Cheshire area Poet-in-Residence suggests you try to get along to Shotton. Situated between Chester and Flint, it is handily placed on the Warrington (Bank Quay) / North Wales train line. Entrance to the 'Poetry & Music Event' in the Plymouth Street Community Centre will be 3.00p (concessions 2.50p). The poetic proceedings are due to begin at 7.30pm.
Poets reading from their work will include Sally Evans, editor of Poetry Scotland, and Aled Lewis Evans, as well as the winners of the North Wales/Flintshire 2007 Poetry Competition. Musical entertainment will be provided by Onya Wick, featuring the versatile Mike Penney, Maureen Weldon and Kemal Houghton. The trio performed to great acclaim at the 2007 Callander Poetry Festival.
