PoArtry Laughter & Sadness

Wow! What a spectacular mixture of emotions were delivered by the PoArtry performers at The Art Yard community gallery on Tuesday, 29th August 2023.

Together the poets delivered an amazing collection of poems to a packed and appreciative audience. First up was Sue Deeming who despite having not performed publicly before led the way with a very confident presentation of her work entitled 'Malcolm the Mermaid' about a little boy who believed he was a mermaid inside. Sue was followed by Mike Alma with his take on the Spanish Amada called 'Waiting', a graphic account of the perils endured by the sailors and those on shore who patiently awaited their eventual downfall.

Harry recorded the event and uploaded the poems to MFAA's website where they will remain available until the next PoArtry event.

The standard of both the writing and delivery of the works performed was of an extremely high standard.

Stan, Sandra and Harry plan to make PoArty a regular event at the gallery.


Midland Film and Art


Midland Film and Art is a membership club where people can enjoy screenings of films or view artwork and crafts that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas or exhibitions, or be available locally. These shows usually have an educational aim, introducing new audiences to different audiovisual works through screening and display, encouraging participation in arts and crafts. A common feature that may characterize a Midland Film and Art meeting is that they either begin with an introduction to the audience and/or end with the promotion of a discussion about the film/art, where assistants, organizers and sometimes the filmmakers/artists themselves, exchange their views.
