Sonnet Youth had a ball hosting a spoken word house party at the amazing Speakeasy at Hidden Door festival. We showcased poetry from award-winning poets Iona Lee and Drew Taylor-Wilson, and peppered our set with disco tunes from Missing Persons Club’s Jimbo. Hopefully this will be the first of many gigs in Edinburgh!

Here are some reviews of the night:
I recognise and am grateful for the privilege I have in having a voice and a platform to share it. I made this poetry video with BBC The Social in the hope that it connects to others, who for whatever reason feel that they can’t use their voice right now. I promise that you will find it/ get it back one day soon! Happy International Women’s Day ⭐️
Myself and co-host of Sonnet Youth, Kevin P Gilday are confirmed to perform at the BBC6 Music Festival at the Tramway on March 26th.
A short interview I gave to Blue Star Streaming after hosting last week’s Scottish Youth Poetry Slam Finals at the Beacon Arts Centre – in seasonal costume of course.
