Forked is back with more delicious poets shaking their metaphorical tail feathers within the sumptuous velvet curtained b-bar. Everyone’s favourite jazz floozy Mama Tokus hosts the evening, taking us on a journey through every kind of poetic life and wonderment. Featured this month we have the fabulous talents of:

Mab Jones -  “Pam Ayres on methadone” delightfully playful, outrageously naughty; amorous, irreverent, and relevant, witty, satirical, dark at times, but always lively and infused with a sparkly sense of fun. Cardiff born poet, comic and writer sent to entertain.

Talking Tekla the Narrator – Established and respected on the reggae scene, Talking Tekla has been Mcing since his youth, sharing stories with lyrical grace.

Catherine Brogan – A poetic collision between the personal and the political, Catherine is a literature festival star and slam champion with a good dose of wit and wisdom thrown in for good measure.

Jack Dean  – ‘The Rambo of the spoken word’ Mcing his way to success and telling it how it is.
