Slack Folk

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than music and poetry?

J.S.Watts (yes, we know it says J.D. Watts on the poster, but it really means J.S.Watts, honest) will be providing the poetry at this month's Slack Folk event in Colchester, Essex. Other than the unexplained name change, the poster says it all. So, if you fancy some folk music and poetry next Saturday afternoon, why not pop along?
