Event Description

Manchester's Queer, Vegan, Poet Dominic Berry launches his first collection of fruit splattered verse, "Tomorrow, I Will Go Dancing" available on the night at £7.95 and published by Flapjack Press.

"There's a photo of us in a place we've yet to be.
It's on the last shot of my camera,
the one I've still not taken,
I'm saving it for you.
But let's not rush.
I am in love with the journey."
taken from 'We Travel'

Host of Manchester's greenroom theatre's fabulous FREED UP open mic for the past three years, Dominic is a regular across the northwest's thriving poetry scene. Now debuting his work in London, his work is political, passionate, often very funny and always immensely enjoyable. Following work printed in publications ranging from Commonword, Gay Times, Ugly Tree and The Vegan Society, this is Dominic's first complete book of original verse, containing many of the slam winning poems he has become known for over the past few years.

"Beautiful writing. A sharp, unflinching eye."
John McGrath, Artistic Director of Contact Theatre

"Attending a Dominic Berry performance is effervescent and life affirming. Similarly, reading this book will be a stimulating, uplifting experience."
The Divine David Hoyle

Please come along and show your support, there may well be refreshments and the like as well.
