Sidmouth Celebration of the Spoken Word Helps Combat the Climate Crisis

Get ready for a poetic extravaganza! Word Forest, the global reforestation charity from Tipton St John, is bringing a monthly poetry and spoken word event to Sidmouth. Join them at the Leigh Brown Room for an evening of creativity and inspiration hosted by the talented founders, Tracey and Simon West. Let your words bloom and help them plant trees around the world!

Simon comments: “Wordplay will give poets and writers of prose a chance to perform their work with a microphone, perhaps for the first time, in front of an appreciative audience. It’s always fascinating listening to pieces performed by their creators in the way they envisioned they would be. The South West is teeming with talent and I can’t wait to open the doors to let the wordy magic happen!”

This will be a fun-filled event on the 3rd Saturday of every month starting on April 20th. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start, with admission just £4 at the door including a light beverage. Indulge in plant-based refreshments while supporting a great cause - Word Forest. Funds raised will go towards planting fast-growing trees in Kenya to combat climate change and alleviate poverty. Help make a difference while enjoying poetry, music, and more at Wordplay.

Tracey concludes: “Wordplay will deliver an entertaining evening and the participants will create a pioneering opportunity to slow global heating and extreme weather events. This is great news because there are worrying meteorological times ahead. Our Special Scientific Advisor, Professor Bill McGuire said recently that many people tell him they feel isolated, and that as individuals they don’t think they can make a worthwhile difference. Bill’s answer is to join a group of like-minded people. This has a galvanising effect, replacing hopelessness with hope; inertia with action. Let’s use Wordplay to do just that!”

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to support the planet and its people in a meaningful way. Join them for an evening of entertainment and environmental impact!
