Performance/Poetry - Listen Festival in Canary Wharf (3)

From the booklet of events this was a wide range of different genres of performances; spanning live lunchtime music, Have a Go Singing, Film screenings, Comedy and of course – Poetry. These events ran from September to December of 1998.

This was the third and final event of Poetry in Performance as part of the ‘Listen’ festival. This performance was simply billed as Performance/Poetry – not very exciting. This showcased the talents of ‘Chocolate Art’ who were described as the ‘next generation of young urban writers’.

The great, Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze was accompanied by Jazz flautists Keith Waithe and finally the Perrier award winning Young vocalist Julie Dexter

This was the final poetry performance for the ‘Listen’ festival.
