Abergavenny Writing Festival – Poetry & Music Night

Upstairs at the Chapel

Saturday 13th April 2019, 7.30-11pm

A unique evening of powerful words will begin with readings from exciting Welsh poets Mari Ellis Dunning and Jonathan Edwards.  Mari will be reading from her debut poetry collection ‘Salacia’ and Jonathan (author of the Costa and Wales Book of the Year People’s Choice Award ‘My Family and Other Superheroes’) from his new collection ‘Gen’.

There will be dazzling bi-lingual poetry and music from literary activist, lyricist, rapper, singer songwriter and performance art poet Rufus Mufasa. And a unique set from Mr Woodnote and Afro Cluster’s frontman Tumi Williams. Mr Woodnote who freestyles beats and bass lines with the use of his loop-station, saxophones and beatboxing will be busting out live beats and bass with Afro Cluster’s frontman. They will be fusing their respective funkiness for the Aber Writing Fest.

And an extra performance from the winner of Christie Residential local talent search (to be announced soon) . . .

Online tickets available here.

Chapel bar will be open all evening.

Tickets £11.
