Performance Success for Highgate Poets

Highgate Poets were invited to perform by Ruth O’Callaghan for Lumen in King’s Cross on Tuesday 19th June. Ruth was away, but we were presented by Belinda Singleton in her stead, to a small but appreciative audience.
Interesting and exciting poetry from Sal Consoli, Christina Juan, Valentina Kotsuba, Anna Meryt, and Milverton Wallace. What a diverse group we are with British poets who originated from Spain, the Philippines, Russia, Wales and Jamaica! All performances were to a high standard.

On Friday 22nd June, several Highgate Poets also took part in a fantastic evening of poetry for the Enfield Literary Festival at The Dugdale Centre, Enfield, organised by Martin Russo and Katherine Gallagher.
