Rare Birds Reading and Presentation at Darlington Arts Festival

May 26th 2018 6-7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House, Darlington

Join Teesside poet Natalie Scott, who will present her Arts Council funded project in progress Rare Birds – Voices of Holloway Prison. This collection of dramatic monologues aims to creatively retell the story of the notorious London prison from 1852 (when it first opened its gates) to 1955 (when the last woman to be hanged in Britain was executed within its walls). Natalie will share some of the fascinating documents she has discovered on her visits to the archives in London and, accompanied by the TWP (Tees Women Poets), will do a script-in-hand performance of selected poems.
