Poet Postie and Poet in the Square


It’s been a brilltastagorical awesometremenderous few months with lots of miles clocked up on my wonderful Pashley green bike. I’ve met around 200 families in the centre of Bristol and been able to talk about the European Green Capital year, perform poetry, show off the bike and invite children to enter my Poet Postie Poetry Competition – winners to be announced every soon!
It’s also been a great time performing in my period costume as a 16th century poet for my POET IN THE SQUARE act in Bristol’s Millennium Square. You can still catch it if you’re quick. Look at the dates in the Green Shoots section on this site!
To cap it all I got to perform for the launch of the Shaun the Sheep National Education programme ‘Keen to be Green’. So remember – be keen to be seen to be green!
