Listening to a spoken word or poetry performance can be a joyful and uplifting experience when we need a boost, or reflective and calming when we need peace. Here at the Virtual Village Hall, we have performances by leading contemporary poets Rowan McCabe and Laura Ding-Edwards, and a festive reading by actor and Royal Voluntary Service Ambassador, Felicity Kendal CBE. Relax, sit back and enjoy some wonderful words.
