In celebration of National Older People’s Day, an open mic poetry event to showcase the talents of older people from across Cheshire, compèred and headlined by Joy France (Nationwide Poetry Campaign 2017).

“Joy France has quickly progressed from open mic to feature slots on the north west scene. Deservedly so; witty and wise and with a natural talent for rhythm and rhyme, La France has that ‘je ne sais quoi!” (Tony Walsh)
