SJR Voice Poetry Evening
The Cardinal in college

Two SJR English students, Eva Curless and Hollie Tarbuck, organised a fantastic poetry evening at college on the evening of Monday 22nd June, the proceeds of which – an amazing £160 - were presented to MIND.

We enjoyed published works from a wide range of poets in the first half, read by SJR students and staff, followed by some extraordinary original poetry from Eva herself and fellow English student Ryan McCracken. We finished up on a wonderful high with readings from local celebrity poets Joy France and Louise Fazackerley, who very kindly offered to support the event and were very impressed by the bravery and talent of all of our readers and performers.

Along the way, there were some delicious home-baked goodies to enjoy and some fantastic raffle and tombola prizes to win – thank you so much to all who kindly contributed and attended an event that we hope to make an annual fixture on the SJR cultural calendar!
