Poetry below Liverpool Cathedral as A Lovely Word goes open air


Poet, author, actor and musician Curtis Watt will headline an evening of spoken word in the setting of St James’ Gardens below Liverpool Cathedral next month.

A Lovely Word goes al fresco on July 1 in a free socially distanced event organised in collaboration with Liverpool’s Unusual Art Sourcing Company.

The monthly spoken word night features established poets but also gives people the chance to perform in an open mic slot.

Audience members are invited to bring their own chairs or blankets, and stewards will allocate seating spots on the evening.

Curtis Watt has worked internationally on both stage and screen. He is recognised as one of Liverpool’s most versatile artists and has been named as one of Diverse Magazine’s Top 50 Black Merseysiders.

His verse is featured in Michael Rosen’s A-Z the Best Children’s Poems, and he has also worked with NML on the development of poetry for the International Slavery Museum and has lyrics quoted on the Freedom Wall.

A Lovely Word is at St James’ Gardens on July 1 at 7.30pm. More information HERE
