This is the Anna Freeman weekend. Not only is she Gingering Glastonbury from the inside but on Monday she takes over at the helm of Bristol’s poetry institution Blah Blah Blah at The Old Vic, Mr Byron Vincent having stepped down to chase other dragons.
Above you can sample her comedic brilliance if you are not one of the thousands who are camping in Pilton just so they can see Anna perform. The poem is taken from Anna’s debut collection Gingering the World from the Inside which is of course published by Burning Eye. You can buy it right here here here.
Anna will be holding a book launch with readings from some of Bristol’s finest poets (Vanessa Kisuule, Al Cummins, Tom Sastry, Rebecca Tantony, Lucy English,Steven Duncan, Jon Seagrave, Jeremy Toombs) on Sunday 14th July at the Leftbank. Here is a facebook events page with more info.
