This weekend, I’m looking forward to performing at two different events, both with an environmental focus.

Tomorrow (Friday 25th February) an evening of poetry focusing on climate change is taking place at Pontardawe Arts Centre, featuring the National Poet of Wales, Gillian Clarke; internationally-acclaimed Welsh language poet, Menna Elfyn; winner of the John Tripp Award, Dafydd Wyn; and me. The winners of the Awel Aman Tawe climate change poetry competition, as judged by Gillian and Menna, will also be reading and the competition anthology will be launched.

The evening gets underway at 7.30pm. Tickets are free but do phone 01792 863722 to reserve a seat. Emily Hinshelwood, the Arts and Climate Change Officer of Awel Aman Tawe, has indicated that lots of tickets have already been booked in advance, so it looks like the venue will be buzzing.

Then on Saturday (26th February), I’m performing, as part of the entertainment programme, at the Green Party’s Spring Conference at the Angel Hotel in Cardiff. More about this gig later…
