A poetry collective which has taken part in every Stevenage Festival since its inception steps into the spotlight tomorrow night.

The Urban Graffiti event staged by Parnassus Performance will be in the Ellen Terry Suite at the town’s arts and leisure centre.

The group’s Grant Meaby will be acting as master of ceremonies and introducing six members performing their own original poetry interspersed with musical and comedy interludes.

He said: “Each poet is limited to a strict 15-minute set so that we can hopefully keep it lively and entertaining.

“Join us for an evening of poetry, music and heaven knows what else!”

Performers on the bill include Smokin’ Dick Burns, Pyro & Fran, J. S. Watts, Graeme Lloyd, Joy T. Chance, Sarah & The Powerpuff Boy and Chris Ripple.

Tickets are £5 from www.gordon-craig.co.uk or 01438 363200.
