Banks' Mill Open Studio Weekend

The Banks' Mill Open Studio event was a terrific success this year with over 900 visitors, many of whom were able to view my art, and hear me perform several poems with the former Cheshire poet laureate Jo Bell.

I was pleased with many of the encouraging comments I received, and was able to discuss my work in detail with more than a few interested visitors and art enthusiasts.
Jo Bell and I had a 'Live' moment on BBC Radio Derby, and enjoyed an additional spot at the Big Blue Cafe in Derby on Saturday night.
Overall, it was a hectic but exciting weekend, with many lessons learned for the future.
