The Winners of the Humber Mouth Writing Competitions
with C.A.Coiffait and Gerard Benson

The festival has pleasure in inviting you to the official launch of The Humber Mouth to meet the talented winners of two writing competitions.
The adjudications of the past two years have been very enjoyable and insighful events for both winners and adjudicators, as well as for the audience. This year will be no exception.

Prolific poet and well known reader at local poetry events Carol Coiffait is the adjudicator of the Open Poetry Competition. Congratulations to the ten winners who were selected from amongst the hundreds of poems sent in by writers of all ages from all over the UK.

Poems on the Underground co-founder Gerard Benson, who writes for both adults and children, will present the prizes for the winners of the Short Story and Poetry Competition for Secondary Schools. He has chosen the winning entries from submissions by Henry Cooper, Kingston, Winifred Holtby and David Lister.

The Humber Mouth Anthology featuring the winning poems and stories will be available throughout the festival period at the price of £3.

The Hofnote Music Academy presents:
Time's Winged Chariot a recital of poetry and music.

In his poem Upon Appleton House Andrew Marvell speaks of the swiftness of time and the expanse of eternity through which people and places come and go. Quoting from the poem and taking its inspiration from it, 'Time's Winged Chariot' is a recital of poetry and music reflecting the continuum of human experience through time. The premiere of a substantial new work by Lester Hough of Hofnote Music Academy, 'Time's Winged Chariot' features poems by Andrew Marvell and Trevor Blacksell and songs by Purcell, Scarlatti, Mozart, Ireland and Richard Rogers. Also featuring sopranos Tamara Hayden and Vikki Francis and poet Trevor Blacksell. The Hofnote Music Academy

Inspired by the Jazz Speakeasy clubs of 1920s/30s USA and the Greenwich Village Coffeshops of 1960s New York, Hull's own Speakeasy at the Adelphi brings you music, live poetry, and time to sit and chat by candlelight. Speakeasy DJ Eddie's classic mix of music from Billie Holliday & Bob Dylan to Woody Guthrie, Leonard Cohen and Jimmy Reed, will be complemented by local poets and performers.

Any poets or performers who want to be part of the evening's line-up please get in touch with Speakeasy by e-mail [email protected].
