Fashion: Fads and Trends Poetry Performance at The Adelaide, Teddington

Poetry Performance

The Adelaide - 07 April 2019

Fashion: Fads and Trends  Poetry Performance at The Adelaide, Teddington

A Review by Celia Bard

There was a poignant gathering for the April session of Poetry Performance, which was dedicated to Frances White, who died earlier in the year from Motor Neurone Disease.  A regular contributor, she was a familiar figure at poetry festivals, and a member of Words, the poetry group founded by the daughter of Dylan Thomas.  There was standing room only, as poems from Frances’s collection Swiftscape were performed.  These included The Black Cuillin, where Frances’s twenty-two year old brother died on the Isle of Skye

The second strand of the evening focused on the theme of Fashion and Trends, which was interpreted in many varied and humorous ways by the many poets who attended this session.  The evening concluded with music from Kevin Taggerty and French Lessons who gave a brilliant rendition of Dedicated Follower of Fashion.
