GREEN ROOM WELCOMES RADICAL POET
8pm. Friday, February 24 sees the return of the charity, Sustainable Wales’s Green Room after a winter break.
First performance will be poet, MIKE JENKINS, a widely published writer who has won Wales ‘Book of the Year’ and edited the international quarterly, ‘Poetry Wales’.
Mike is celebrated for his radical political views, but his poetry is wide ranging and original. Often it reflects his life spent as a teacher in comprehensive schools in south Wales.
Well known also as an opponent of opencast mining, which he sees as a blight on his local landscape in Merthyr Tydfil, Mike Jenkins has also recently began to write in Welsh.
Joining Mike will be fellow poet MIKE CHURCH, and there will be opportunities for local writers to join in the Open Mic, always a popular Green Room feature.
The Green Room will diversify in 2017, with a series of music events and discussions.
Entrance £4. Everyone welcome. The charity does not have an alcohol license, thus the public are urged to bring their own.

The latest books by Mike Jenkins and Mike Church will be on sale on the night.
