#1631 LIVE! From the National Young Writers Festival


Earlier this month All The Best teamed up with the National Young Writers Festival in Newcastle to host a night of Poetry and Music at Vinyl Cafe. We brought musicians and poets together to perform under the theme ‘The Body as a Map’, and the result was a beautiful and spontaneous evening of stories.

A Night of Poetry and Music was hosted by Selena Shannon and Bethany Atkinson-Quinton.
