Our first spoken word performer has been announced…

Dónall Dempsey

Dónall Dempsey is originally from Kildare in Ireland, where he first began writing poetry and broadcast on local radio and on Irish television with John Cooper Clarke and Paul Durcan. He came to work in England in the 1980’s and has been living in Guildford, Surrey with his wife, Janice, since 2010.

He has read and performed his poems at festivals in France and India, as well as London, Guildford and elsewhere in Britain. He has published four books of his poems since 2010 and is an exciting, funny and moving performer, with an enthusiastic fan-base on the internet and at the monthly events that he and Janice host at The Keep, Guildford, as The 1000 Monkeys.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our social media feeds for announcements of new artists… and of course, apply if you wish to take part.
