The Audlem Music and Arts Festival

2020 should have seen Poets, Prattlers, and Pandemonialists present the 9th Audlem Music and Arts Festival Poetry Slam, but things didn't go to plan!

If you've previously been along to any of the poetry slams which run as part of the festival opening night then you'll know what top-quality entertainment it is.

So....rather than miss out completely on the shenanigans, we'll be running a Facebook event at the same time as the slam should have taken place. We've invited all eight of our previous winners to send us a film of themselves performing a poem, as a reminder of the amazing talent that has appeared at Audlem slams. There will also be a poem a piece from each of the Pandemonialists, Emma Purshouse, Steve Pottinger and Dave Pitt.

If you'd like to join us in the Poets, Prattlers, and Pandemonialists Facebook group for this sharing then please do drop by. We'll be posting from 7.30pm on Thursday May 21st which would have been the time of the slam.

A concerned AudlemOnline reader writes:-"On Friday, I had to give way to a woman in a dark blue BMW on Cheshire Street who barged her way along, even though I had the right of way. When she drew level with me, she was using her ephone and had it clamped to her ear -- clearly an important call."Then, on Saturday at just gone 12:30, lo and behold, the same woman and BMW parked on...
