York Well-being Day

The York Well-being Day is a city wide day of pop up events focusing on helping people living and working in York to improve self care and create a better work/life balance.

To round the day off is the York Well-being Evening at the Hotel du Vin in York, a wide range of practitioners, therapists and wellness products will be available with check ups, mini treatments and advice.

Two Rivers Radio will be broadcasting live from the evening playing uplifting music and chatting to guests and exhibitors to find out what well-being means to them.

The Poetry Show S2.8 THE MOON and Stairwell Books Presents: William and Valerie

The Poetry Show S2.8 THE MOON and Stairwell Books Presents: William and Valerie. YES this time we mean it

The Poetry Show, Season Two Episode 8.

Monday’s show is about THE MOON, and features Kit Marshall and Becca Miles

Along with Roses being red, and violets blue, poets have written about Junes and Moons.

The moon is our own dear satellite and creates tides; influences the internal tides in a female body; and really does bring out the madness in some. Once, I took Em thru to A&E and there were people shouting at the wall, ranting, singing and so on. I looked at a nurse; she shrugged. I said helpfully “It’s a full moon, you know” and she visibly brightened and called to a colleague: “FULL MOON!” She smiled back and said “That explains it! It’s not normally like this, you know!”

From werewolves to witchcraft, a full moon has taken a lot of blame. I used to say “The moon’s always full at the East Gate” which was a small restaurant with a busy bar that I tended. I’ve got an ‘occasion poem’ I wrote for my sister, when her son Matt and his wife had their first child. If I get to it, I also have one about Alan’s old flat, abandoned to mice and moon.

After TPS, we have Stairwell Books Presents: William Thirsk-Gaskill and Valeri Gaskill.

Two weeks ago, SWB celebrated an excellent somewhat local launch for RETURN OF THE MANTRA, in Susie’s old stomping grounds of Holmfirth. William came along as a support reader, and after the books had sold and the cake been eaten, we sat down with William and Valerie to chat about short stories. William’s launch of SOMETHING I NEED TO TELL YOU will be at the beautiful, 250 year old Leeds Library on Weds July 11th. Join us!

Just want to add: Well done, Declan! SleepEasy, our themed open mic on Sleep, Insomnia, Dreams and all things in-between, was a smash success on Friday. Thanks also to Tom, Jeannette and their family of restauranteurs at True Story Café. Delicious food, fab ambience, and every seat filled. Dec and I will be back with another themed night in two months!

All that Brass!

Who was Daisy Squelch and what was she famous for? Why did the Bean Brothers Brass Band have a rumble with James Walker’s Band in York and what did politics have to do with it? What is it about contesting and drinking? And how does the women’s suffrage movement link with banding? This week’s All That Brass delves into the lively history of brass bands in York and further afield – and there’s plenty of music too, from classics to Cuban and from sunshine soul to jazz trad and street in All That Brass, 8.00-9.00pm with Kate Lock.

The Poetry Show: FRIENDS, followed by Stairwell Books Presents: A NEW DAWN for The Poetry Show!

This coming Monday on The Poetry Show: FRIENDS, followed by Stairwell Books Presents: A NEW DAWN for The Poetry Show! plus news about launch events.

The Poetry Show is about poems for everyone: it’s not that stuff you learned in school. This is a podcast that aims to bring poems and poetic discussion to people who love poetry, to those of you who just aren’t all that sure, and to poetry novices…and maybe we can inspire you to try a poem for yourself. A word of warning: we might use a coupla edgy words. We’re kinda PG 13.

Every week, we will discuss a theme, and look at how four very different poets work with the theme to create a poem… Hopefully something for everyone! So we’ll each do a poem, and we’ll chat about that poem and move on to the next.

This episode has Rose, Alan, Becca Miles and special guest Kit Marshall! Today’s show is hopeful and positive. It’s about FRIENDS.

Is this where I break into James Taylor? Don’t we all need friends? Do YOU need friends? Or are they a necessary evil?

Are you the life of the party, or the one hunched over in the corner, talking to the house cat?

Do you have 5,972 close Facebook friends? or are you happily alone?

What does the word ‘FRIEND’ mean to you?

My poems about ‘friends’ were mostly written ages ago, so these are short, old poems. Kind of like me. Tune in to hear what Becca, Alan and Kit have to say about Friends.

* ~ * ~ *

Following our broadcast of S2.1 “Friends”, Alan, Rose and Becca will chat about Big Poetry Show news (Yay!!), Staxtonbury, and upcoming launches. Launch events include David Lee Morgan’s music and poetry event in Sheffield on May 17 at DINA Café, with, first, his visit on May 16 to York open mic BeSpeak (Black Swan, 7.30pm, free). Check out David poeticizing here:
