Poetry performance 27 September

A Story I Am In: A benefit performance for James Berry

Join us at this special fundraising event at the Tabernacle on Friday 27th September where nineteen outstanding poets, musicians and performers will share the stage to mark James Berry's life in words.

Tickets £35 (£45 after 20th September)
Price of ticket includes a Caribbean buffet meal

Acclaimed poet James Berry celebrates 90 years of poetry, stories and song in 2014. James was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease nine years ago and has been in residential care, a number of care homes and has spent many months in hospital. Despite the serious nature of his illness he continues to enjoy listening to poetry and talking about everything under the sun.

Collaborating organisations and contributors on the night will bear witness to Berry's contribution to the transformation of the national, Caribbean and international literary landscapes.

The Alzheimer’s Society’s programme ‘Singing for the Brain’ is a beneficiary of the James Berry Trust. Part of the proceeds of this Benefit will be donated to ‘Singing for the Brain’.
