Sunny Saturday at Morville

by Jeff Phelps on June 28th, 2010

Saturday 26th June 2010 I did an outdoor performance of River Passage and a few of my other poems as part of a fund raising event for the next Wenlock Poetry Festival. Dan couldn’t be there (see link below) to provide the piano music backing so it was down to the piano-only CD again. I was in excellent company. Gabrielle Drake read from The Morville Hours by Katherine Swift, and there were readings from Paul Henry, Rosie Bailey, Mark Niel, Kamina Banga and Imtiaz Darka – all in the lovely surroundings of the Dower House gardens at Morville, near Bridgnorth.


Loads of fresh strawberries were eaten with cream and there was fizzy pink stuff in glasses. The audience shirked in the shade of the trees and bushes while the poets strutted their stuff in the sun. Thanks to all friends for attending and to Nadia Kingsley for these photos which capture the day and the atmosphere so beautifully.

River Passage is now available as a CD with music by Dan Phelps. It’s one of the first three productions from the brand new West Midlands poetry press Offa’s Press.
