The Return of Poem in Your Pocket for the 2021 Bedlam Arts and Mental Health Festival


On the 16th November the HEARTH Centre presented an evening of poetry and prose from their 2020 project ‘Tales of Lockdown’. The event featured Polly Wright, Laurence Inman, Liz Churchill, Rochi Rampal and Alison Belbin and was a celebration of words to help our mental health by moving us to laughter or tears or simply give us food for thought.

Following the readings there was an open mic for others to share their own writing or favourite writings by others. See below for some pictures of what was a very successful evening.
