  • Benjamin J. Wilson: A spoken word poet steeped in self-deprecation and odd rhythms, questioning masculinity, mental health, addiction, and the confusion of living in this time and space.
  • Viviane Peoc'h: Where narrative meets balladry, her poetry glides upon tender free verse, sonnet, elegy, and realistic political lullaby, inspired by Nature, Love, and Death.
  • Gareth Culshaw: An imagist poet influenced by the Welsh landscape.
  • Glyn Edwards: His latest collection is shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year. An ecopoet encouraging more people from working-class backgrounds to write.
  • Pat Edwards: Curator of Welshpool Poetry Festival, Pat is a writer, reviewer, and workshop leader from Mid Wales.

Binderella

Sat-13-Jul 1:30 pm
£12.00
Binderella

A baby cries in a bin at night - as a Faceless Man carves land for profit; a tall tower rises - as the World Tree shakes; and the fate of the earth hangs upon a single silken spider's thread.

Binderella is a tale for our times, the wild birth-myth of an Anti-Goddess who challenges the forces of greed and despair that seek to steal our future from us. This anarchistic wonder story peeks through the cracks in our society, fusing an environmental rallying cry with an uplifting call for compassion and courage in this age of crisis. 

In this debut performance The Ragged Storytelling Collective; Kestrel, Heulwen and Hazel, weave their unique patchwork vision, stitching the raw energy of punk storytelling with a haunting thread of Welsh folk melody and song in this fiercely modern epic.

Originally developed through Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival's New Voices scheme in 2021 and made possible through investment from Arts Council Wales National lottery Funding. With creative support from internationally acclaimed storyteller Daniel Morden, and leading Welsh folk musician Oliver Wilson-Dickson, this show will leave you spellbound. 

Kestrel is a dynamic and passionate performer with a unique vision. Binderella is a compelling mash-up of memoir, myth and the Matrix. A must-see! -Daniel Morden

“A back-alley fairytale, scavenged, upcycled and retold!”

“I defy anyone not to enjoy this show!”

Doors 1:30pm, performance 2pm
