White Rose BookCafe and Kate Fox host another special event following the very popular Christmas event at the Golden Fleece. This time Bloomin’ Words Cabaret will be in the relaxed surroundings of the Thirsk Royal British Legion Club, and will be welcoming some guest wordsmiths from North Yorkshire and Northumberland for a night of performance and words. Ann Porro and Degna Stone are both award winning poets who have competed in poetry slams (a type of performance poetry competition) and won plaudits for their unique and quirky takes on the world. They’ll both be doing guest slots. Then regular host Kate Fox (who Sarah Millican has described as “funny, quirky and a wonderful writer”) and rising stars from the pop-folk circuit Union Jill are teaming up to give us a preview of a new show they’re collaborating on ‘Letting Off Steam’.
Entertaining rhythms, rhyming and ranting from three of the North’s top female wordsmiths. Union Jill’ssoaring songs and Kate Fox’s sharp satire are knitted together with a big, warm helping of down to earth Yorkshire daftness. ‘Letting off Steam’ is having a natter over a cuppa with your best mates. It’s having a rant about the things that are wrong and celebrating the things that make life better. It’s getting away from the irritations and obligations of everyday life for a night of beautiful music, uplifting comedy and surprising stories. Come and join us- we’ve got the kettle on! Tickets available from White Rose BookCafe £8 each.
