At long last, we have a LIVEwire Liverpool date in the diary! We’re over the moon to be providing the main Saturday night event at The Everyman as part of the first-ever A Lovely Poetry Festival. So, with this being our first event on Merseyside, we couldn’t pull any punches.
Join us in the stunning surrounds of 254-year-old The Leeds Library for one of Leeds’ leading poetry nights! The 16th installment of ‘Chelping’ stars Casey Bailey and Ella Otomewo, plus open mic hosted by Matt Abbott.
The ninth of our Insta sessions features Casey Bailey. Casey is a writer, performer and educator, born and raised in Nechells, Birmingham. Casey released his debut collection ‘Adjusted‘ in 2018 with Verve Poetry Press and had his play ‘GrimeBoy’ commissioned by Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Casey’s poetry has featured in a number of anthologies and he was commissioned by the BBC to write ‘The Ballad of The Peaky Blinders’ in 2019. Casey has performed his poetry nationally and internationally.
