We were so happy to welcome Canal Laureate Nancy Campbell on board this week for an evening of poetry, and the première of The Cut filmpoem. The Cut is a collaboration between Nancy and the Canadian artist Pierre Tremblay made along the Regents Canal.
This was all rounded off with some jolly audience participation, as we made sentences around canal-boating terms such as ‘tip cat’, ‘tumblehome’, ‘crumb drawer’ and ‘starvationers’. Keep an eye and ear open for Nancy in the coming year. We are looking forward to some more watery words.
