Fraff next up on #TakeOverFest bill

Back to News

A fast paced poetry night for people who don’t like poetry is next up on the #TakeOverStHelens bill.

Fresh from performing at Bestival this September, the Fraff team are heading to St Helens from around the country with their weird, fun and downright different night.

After performing “in a field on an isle” the artists aren’t phased by their next unusual setting – St Helens Central Library on Friday, October 16th, 7pm.

Compere of the night Scottee, who performed at the recent launch of #TakeOverStHelens, said: “Firstly I’m dyslexic, I think poems should rhyme! So it’s not your average poetry night.”

“It’s basically a bunch of performers doing poetry, something they wouldn’t normally do. This isn’t your bog standard spoken word. It’s daft and may not make sense.”

“It’s fast paced, fun and the audience get involved. You are allowed to throw paper at any of the performers who put on one of those silly spoken word voice or do poems about love!”

The night is a part of the Cultural Hubs programme. Cultural Hubs is an Arts Council England funded programme of work animating St.Helens’ network of 13 libraries with performances, plays, gigs, workshops, courses, events, exhibitions and more. It’s been has been programmed in collaboration with people from across St.Helens.
