In 2021, Coventry will celebrate its year as the UK City of Culture. In preparation, a series of events are set to take place over the coming months. From poetry readings to book launches, art exhibitions to photography workshops, the creative hub of Coventry is beginning to prepare.
This year, Laura has been working with Coventry’s Positive Images Festival to bring a poetry event to the city centre. In memory of Leanne Bridgewater, the event will invite local poets to read their work and share an evening together in the friendly atmosphere of The Tin, a music and arts venue in the Canal Basin.
Taking place on Friday 4th October, the event will be headlined by Sarah Fletcher, Laura Potts, Katie Hale and Liz Berry.
Food and drink will be available throughout the evening. While the event is free to enter, any donations will be gratefully received and will go towards The Hunt Saboteurs Association, a charity which was close to Leanne’s heart.
