Join us for a special event in recognition of World Mental Health Day with guest host Peter Lay and featured poets Chloë Jacquet, Jemima Hughes and Tanya Feasey.


‘Chloë Jacquet is a multi-slam winning, multicultural, multifaceted spoken word artist based in Gloucestershire. She was 2017 Oxford Hammer & Tongue slam champion and reached the semi-finals of the National Slam Finals at the Royal Albert Hall in both 2018 and 2019.
With a preference for straight talking and a penchant for rhymes and opinions, Chloë’s poetry is both entertaining and accessible. Her work deals with a wide variety of subjects, ranging from workplace discrimination and mental health, to the pressures placed on modern men, via her short term relationship with a biscuit.
Chloë thinks name dropping is really uncool. She has supported artists such as Elvis McGonagall and Hollie McNish.’


‘Sit back and don't relax. Jemima is a Birmingham based performance poet who will drag you through the minefield of the unorthodox. Her work covers topics such as sexual violence, mental illness and suicide. Jemima will take you on a journey through her own experiences, providing a relatable outlet and encouraging conversation. Not for the faint hearted, but definitely from the heart.’


‘Tanya Feasey AKA The Bovine Poet, started writing poetry several years ago as she was going to a poetry events. For some reason Tanya then started producing a lot of bovine poetry. She has no idea why this is. It just sort of happened.
Tanya is a humorous poet. Her poems reflect her daily life, where she works as a Countryside Ranger.
Tanya's poems are often described as witty, extremely rude and quite tactless. For some reason Tanya is proud of this.’
