Unfest is a popular FREE music and arts festival that runs in Tunbridge Wells throughout the May bank holiday weekend. Over the past four years Unfest has gone from strength to strength, showcasing 100 + live bands and performers at a variety of venues around the town.
Last year several Tunbridge Wells Writers contributed to the festival by performing Poetry in the Garden – a Word Up event staged at the Tunbridge Wells Forum on a gloriously sunny day to a large and appreciative audience.
This year we have the opportunity to team up with the lovely Debbie and team at Javabean Cafe for two evenings of live jazz music and spoken word performances…
DETAILS (from Carolyn Gray):
Saturday May 24th 5-7pm
Sunday May 25th 3-5pm
Javabean cafe will be joining in unfest this year, showcasing it’s poetry and jazz nights. Sue Marlow is organising the music side, and Carolyn Gray is organising the poetry/reading side.
Our initial idea is to offer a non-stop two hour mix on Saturday evening consisting of music sessions and reading sessions, and, possibly, combined ‘fusion’ sessions. The Sunday event will be more music orientated, featuring Jazz from Javabean’s ‘in-house’ assembly and special guest performers.
Because of the nature of this as a performance, places to read will need to be booked with Carolyn using the contact form below. Please email which day you can do, and if there needs to be a certain time you read within, and we will progress from there with thoughts and ideas. We will be performing to a family audience.
Here are all the facebook events:
