Friday 6th July will be an evening to chill, with up and coming local poet Ben Ray and Cinderford-based folk heroes The Six Foot Way among those entertaining us ‘cabaret’ style at Coleford Baptist Hall.
Ben is a rising young poet from the Welsh borders whose work ‘reveals a canny understanding of life and language’ (Nancy Campbell). His first collection ‘After the Poet, the Bar’ was released with Indigo Dreams Publishing in 2016, and his work has since appeared in a wide array of journals and websites. A versatile and accomplished poet!
The Six Foot Way played for the Festival last year at our Hopewell event celebrating 700 years of the Charter of the Forest, and we wanted them back again! Their mix of songs and tunes from around the world, both traditional and contemporary comes with their own twist. Think the Pogues, The Dubliners, Fairport & The Levellers.
