Three of us from Southend Poetry Group attended the event at Folded Space and met Lawrence and Paul from Art Can, who had set up a display of art, some theirs and some from local artists. Art Can is a group which is mostly focussed on London but had put on exhititions elsewhere, this was their first time in Southend.

The few of us who were there sat round in a circle and read poetry, Lawrence also played guitar and sang. It turned out to be a pleasant evening. It so happened that I was planning for a double reading session, before and after the interval, as set out on the timetable and had looked out a couple of Carol's poems from the anthology.
