Sonnet Youth at Hidden Door Festival

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:

THE MUMBLE : Where are you from & how did you end up in Glasgow?
CAT : I’m originally from a tiny hamlet outside Dunblane called Ashfield (there’s not even a shop!), but I’ve always loved city life, so I moved to Glasgow ten years ago to start University and study theatre. I think I initially picked Glasgow because I loved going clubbing at the Arches, and I ended up working there for four years, until it got shut down. I’ve always thought there was something quite serendipitous about that. I love traveling and living in other places, but my compass always leads me back to Glasgow. She’s a wet and grey mistress, but she’s pretty fabulous, in a fur coat nae knickers kind of way. Glasgow’s a great base for me; and an ideal city to live in if you’re in a creative industry.
