Emergency Poet at the Park!

We have news of an exciting-sounding emergency service coming your way very soon! The Emergency Poet is the world’s first and only mobile poetic first aid service, and she will be driving her vintage ambulance to the Kiosk at the Park on Sunday 21st July, from 11am-4pm. Described as a ‘mix of the serious and the theatrical’, the ambulance will also contain skulls, jars full of eyeballs and none other than Nurse Verse! Sound intriguing? There’s more! After a consultation, you will be diagnosed and prescribed some great poetry, perhaps in the form of poemcetamol…

The emergency poet’s secret identity is Deborah Alma, an experienced workshop facilitator who has, amongst many other things, delivered sessions on using poetry to help communicate with people with dementia for The Courtyard Theatre, Hereford. Deborah has a degree and a masters in creative writing, and is lead writer at The West Midlands Writers Squad, which teaches creative writing to young people in Ludlow. We’re really excited about her visiting the Kiosk, and look forward to welcoming her on Sunday, along with her poetry and her eyeballs!

The Emergency Poet is just one of the many Bedfringe events that are happening all over Bedford during the next few weeks. Have a look at what else is on here: loads of comedy, theatre, and shows for children.  And if you’ve been to a brilliant Bedfringe event and would like to review it – why not write a post for the citizen bedford blog?

See you on Sunday for an emergency appointment with some poetry!

    Hurrah! Some more poetry for Bedford. (I hope the Kiosk will take part in the Poetry trail we are planning for the Autumn too….someone will call….)
