Announcement

I am delighted to announce that thanks to a substantial grant from Arts Council England, La Luna will be offering an extensive programme of events from the autumn of 2018 and into 2019.  The Best Words programme will be announced in full shortly but here is a taster of what’s on offer.

The Poetry Cafe

Our poetry cafe will continue to take place at Riverhead Coffee, Victoria Street. Dates and times are subject to confirmation but we will continue to run the events on Thursday afternoons.  We will be offering workshops and performances from special guests, all of which will be announced over the coming weeks.

 

Emerging Voices 

Following the success of our Young Voices project in 2017 we are delighted that we will be offering up to ten young writers aged 18-25 a chance to work with editors, writers and personal productivity specialists to develop their writing for a publication in 2019.  They will also be given performance opportunities. We will be inviting potential candidates to apply in July and a small bursary will be available for successful applicants.

Great Grimsby Community Choir

We are particularly thrilled that funding is available to write and perform new music with the Great Grimsby Community Choir. Professional musicians, writers and arrangers will work with the choir to produce two new suites of music, one to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One and another for Christmas. Concerts with special guests are currently being planned for the autumn and winter.  There will also be a CD available in time for Christmas!

Poetry Thursdays at The Albert Room

In addition to this exciting programme of events La Luna is delighted to be working in partnership with Lincs Inspire to bring a year-long programme of poetry to The Albert Room in Cleethorpes Library.  We are currently planning workshops and performances with writers from the local and national scenes and will announce the full programme soon.  This programme will launch on National Poetry Day, October 4th.
