Hello!  A busy month for Apples and Snakes South East this month as we welcome A Roo in my Suitcase, a poetry and song show for 3 to 6 year olds to the Nuffield Theatre. Then, for the slightly more mature, we’re mixing verse with digital gaming by supporting Grand Verse Quarto, a show that features poems about games as part of the Games Expo East Kent.

Then we have the first 451 of 2012 featuring two of my personal favourite poets, the wonderfully eccentric Rachel Pantechnicon and the too-clever-by-half Nathan Filer who are guaranteed to wash away those February blues. I’d also like to give a quick mention to Lemn Sissay and the Turner Contemporary in Margate where one of Lemn’s poems was projected on to the building as part of the Olympic Winning Words project during January, creating a beautiful poetry and technology spectacle. For those of you who didn’t get the chance to see it, there are photos of the project right here.
