The Torbay Poetry Festival 17 started on Thursday 19th October 2017 at ACE with William Oxley and readings by Brenda Hutchings and Roy Cameron.

Brenda read: My mum’s wartime reminiscences of silk stockings, Glen Miller and her fight pilot who never came back.

Her father, a war time sailor, escaped the horrors by making kites and flying them from his ship.

About 2 boys who went to play in the rough waves and one didn’t come back!

Superstition. Don’t change the bed sheets on a Friday.

Not guilty and Beans means fines.

Big hand bags

Salmon fishing on the river Dart

Roy read: Day and Night dreams

A pint of Guinness in Birmingham railway station

Devonian limericks

Ladies behind the bar

The dread of Poetry Themes

Our Graham Young, of ACE, recited a poem without notes

ACE members have enjoyed these privileged recitals, from such excellent poets, since 2002.
We love the various styles and subjects and we are praised for being such a good audience.
