Towersey Taster

Spent all day rehearsing for the Towersey. Hilarious time reading a very short poem in different voices about thirty times in the field behind the Albany. (If you’ve never been out the back at the Albany, there are free-range chickens, they aren’t a very appreciative audience though).

You can listen to Paul Sherread talking about us writers appearing at Towersey Festival over the August Bank Holiday on Oxford Radio, 

A little bit of chat about Cherry Potts and David McGrath from Arachne, and also Esther Poyer. There’s lots more about the Towersey as well, but Paul is on at 2:11:35.
