Wrexham is in for a wordy treat on Wednesday when the Poetry Takeaway rolls into town. A larger project in association with Nationwide Building Society has involved local women working with some of the UKs brightest poets including Laurie Bolger and Young People’s Laureate Wales Sophie McKeand to create their own poems that will be showcased at a free event later the same day.
The Poetry Takeaway is the Worlds first mobile Poetry Emporium, serving high quality, personalised Poetry to diners, written, performed and wrapped up to Takeaway.
Their diverse group of poet chefs are the heart of The Poetry Takeaway, along with the people they meet, the stories shared and how they tell them.
“Does what it says on The Van”
“Our talented team of poet chefs will carefully craft a free personalised poem for you, perform it and wrap it up to takeaway”
“We guarantee tears, laughter and everything in between”
“Everything is prepared fresh on the premises”
“No such thing as free lunch, there is from The Poetry Takeaway”
The process starts with an initial discussion, taking the order and gathering ingredients. Although the aim is to complete the poem quickly, it is carefully crafted, written and performed, wrapped up and sent on its journey FREE of charge.
The Poetry Takeaway guarantees everything from tears, laughter and everything in between and will be outside UnDegUn on Wednesday 20th September from 1pm – 4pm.
The women’s poetry sharing will take place in UnDegUn from 7pm – 8pm. Both events are free – all are welcome.
