The first launch of the Frogmore anthology Poetry South-East 2010 took place last night at the New Venture Theatre in Brighton.
It was a wonderful evening, compered by the inimitable Catherine Smith, with moving performances by Lorna Thorpe, Ros Barber, Brendan Cleary and Maria Jastrzebska. Two other contributors from the anthology, Rachel Playforth and Colette Sensier, bravely grabbed the open mic and read their poems. I took a few pictures of the poets on the bill, as well as Catherine (see below). As a special treat here is a clip of Brendan Cleary reading 'Physics':
