Join Teesside poet Natalie Scott and members of the TWP women’s poetry collective, who will present her Arts Council funded project in progress “Rare Birds – Voices of Holloway Prison”.

This collection of dramatic monologues aims to creatively retell the story of the notorious London prison from 1852 (when it first opened its gates) to 1955 (when the last woman to be hanged in Britain was executed within its walls), through a range of imagined voices.

Natalie will share some of the fascinating documents she has discovered on her visits to the archives in London and members of the TWP will perform selected poems.

Natalie will be joined by poets Dianne Casey, Jo Colley, Ann Cuthbert, Julie Easley, Ellen Griffiths, Gail Henderson, Kirsten Luckins, Susie McComb, Janet Philo and Judi Sutherland.

And as an extra treat… local musician Carl James Dunning will be performing his recently composed songs inspired by the project.
