ArtsFest: Rare Birds – Voices of Holloway Prison Presentation

Join Teesside poet Natalie Scott, who will present her Arts Council funded project in progress Rare Birds – Voices of Holloway Prison.

Natalie will share some of the fascinating documents she has discovered on her visits to the archives in London and, accompanied by the TWP (Tees Women Poets), will do a script-in-hand performance of selected poems.
