The event will also include poetry recitals by members of the Bristol Poetry Institute, William Wooten (You Have a Visitor, 2016) and Jack Thacker (winner of 2016 Charles Causley International Poetry Competition) – all participants are invited to bring along any stories, poems and songs which you would like to share about this most elusive of singers!
