Nottingham Poetry Festival - Elvis Mcgonnagal, Antenna, Nottingham - 27th April 2018

One of the best nights we’ve had in ages at Antenna. We enjoyed three poets, very diverse and talented. The venue lent itself to the enjoyment, making it an intimate and relaxing setting. Bar service friendly and quick, all drinks fairly priced and good quality, especially special beer brewed for the event.
Well organised event, thanks for faultless evening.

Nottingham Poetry Festival - Elvis Mcgonnagal, Antenna, Nottingham - 27th April 2018

What a treat. Three poets, two unknown to us, the third, Elvis, a big name on the circuit. Bridie Squires and her arresting urban approach to life, the universe, arse sparrows (don't ask) and bins; she filled the stage. Acid, arresting and lippy as her own description. Stephen Thomas outstanding, a true performance poet. The Alphabet Spaghetti AtoZ poetry collection terrific. Rush out and buy. His 'Steve Employment' 'experimental set cries out to go national. Elvis Mcgonnagal is at the top of his game; angry, tender, mega observational, angry again, dissecting the toxic political climate to a new level of contempt with a few Latin quips chucked in for good measure. Great night out and excellent venue. Hope to see all three again doing the Festival rounds where poetry tents are oft bursting at the seams. Bring on Nottm Poetry Fest 2019, it can only get better and better and better.

Nottingham Poetry Festival - Elvis Mcgonnagal, Antenna, Nottingham - 27th April 2018

What a great night! The venue was perfect, relaxed and friendly. Settled ourselves down with a well deserved Friday night glass of wine and were treated to three very different but fab poetry performances. Bridie Squires kicked it all off and got us in the mood with her real 'Nottingham' gutsy poems. Stephen Thomas then took us on an hilarious journey through the alphabet; introduced us to Steve Employment's amazing new face to face concept and blew our minds with an Alexander McQueen inspired fusion of spoken word, film and music. As if that weren't enough we then had the cherry on the cake with Elvis McGonagall. We wept laughing as he shared his sharp eyed and even sharper tongued observations on everything from working behind a bar to Donald Trumps hair. Simply brilliant! Thank you Nottingham Poetry Festival.
