Time and Tide: Portugal audio recordings

Unfortunately the video for the Portuguese leg of the Solstice Shorts Festival went very wonky. We’ve managed to salvage the audio for most of it.

Here are a couple of the poems read by their authors, at Oeiras on the Winter Solstice:

Delivery by Holly Blades read by the poet

Points of Interest by Olivia Dawson, read by the poet

 

Audio recordings from Departures Launch

Thanks to everyone who came along to celebrate the launch of Departures at Brockley Brewery last night, it is so lovely to have a packed venue!

And huge thanks to the readers for instilling such passion and humour into their readings, and to the Brewery for hosting us.

Normally I video everything, but in the heat of the moment I didn’t hit the record button till part way through, so there are only audio recordings for the first two readings, massive apologies to David Mathews and Sarah Lawson for that, but the recordings are good.

Here’s David reading Midday Bus
