Performance Poet Dominic Berry to perform his latest poetry as part of Darwen Live

Wednesday 30th May 2018, 1pm, Darwen Market Annex, Tickets are FREE

Award winning poet and Glastonbury Festival regular, Dominic Berry, is thrilled to be taking his latest set of poetry for a special performance at Darwen Market, as part of Darwen Live. His latest tour has 20 dates; 10 of which are being performed in traditional performance venues and 10 within unfamiliar venues, specifically identified by Dominic.

He performs his poems; sometimes hilariously funny, sometimes deeply moving, always imaginative, powerful and memorable. If you think poetry always has to be dry and difficult, think again – this is not like the poetry they used to teach at school!

For the past 10 years, Dominic has been a professional performance poet, and has toured across USA, Canada, India, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia and Europe. On TV, he has performed his poetry on BBC2 showcasing the best of 2017 Glastonbury Festival, BBC’s Greg and Celia’s Festivals Highlights (highlights of 2014’s Edinburgh Fringe), Channel 4’s My Daughter The Teenage Nudist and Channel 4 News. In his children’s poet ‘Dommy B’ persona, he has performed on CBeebies Rhyme Rocket.

“Dominic is an exceptional force in the poetry and spoken word scene.”

John McGrath Artistic Director, National Theatre Wales

“From the moment he started to speak we were totally captivated – the incredible way he uses words, the expression and energy of the delivery and the subject matter made him irresistible.”

City Life Magazine

“Exuberant, lively, expressive and totally nuts, Dominic owns the stage.”
