A Lovely Word, downstairs at the Everyman, is Liverpool’s most eclectic poetry night.
It features two halves of open mic poets, and a headliner beginning the first half. Hosted by Alex Ferguson and team, this free event is a fun, relaxed and friendly evening of performance poetry.
Reece Williams is a Mancunian recording artist of Jamaican and Trinidadian heritage. For over 10 years, Reece has been bringing his inimitable, no-holds-barred brand of wordsmithery to stages up and down the country (including Band On The Wall and The Southbank Centre) and internationally too (with performances in New York City’s Nuyorican Poets Café -the ‘temple’ of spoken word and the prestigious Schaubuehne in Berlin). His work has been played on BBC Radio 1, Radio 4 and 1 Xtra and he programmed an entire stage for Manchester International Festival’s Music lineup in 2021.
In November 2023, he will premiere ‘This Kind of Black’ his solo show at HOME, which is adapted from his upcoming debut collection of the same name.
