OH crumbs sp0ring festival
online Forest of Dean
Venue: on line Zoom
3 years ago we- Leonard Custard apprentice clown, Maggie Clutterbuck Forest Bard & variety star Darren Hoskins decided there was a gap in the Forest of Dean for writers, poets, performers, story tellers -etc
It had always seemed to be about getting into a car and driving a distance away to hear and find space to share words/ ideas
The Bream Coffee shop (a Cafe with great cakes) -apparently the largest village in England- agreed to host a regular monthly evening and since then we have enjoyed healthy audiences.somewhere between 20 and 40 + gathering to take part and support a series of special guests and a growing ensemble of local writers.
Shunted onto Zoom last year 'Oh Crumbs' "a lively accessible spoken word event" continues to offer live space for poets, story tellers and performers.
With a Thursday evening spot every 2 weeks from 8pm we have welcomed performances from many places

usually a special guest on alternate weeks and open mike every time.
