Leon the pig farmer

Jack Horner aka Leon the pig farmer is a Manchester based Yorkshire beat poet who has a little more than a lot to say. An ex-serviceman who began writing verse to help him deal with a PTSD diagnosis.

Leon has an assertive take on spoken word with fast firing rhythmic verse and a sharp outlook on both his mental health recovery and other social topics and observations that catch his eye.

His delivery has been compared to both a belt fed mortar explosion and a staccato assault full of energy and emotion which can silence and mesmerize an audience.

Black Horse Poet of the Year on two occasions, he has published two collections, Gormless (2011) and Leet (2013), along with three albums of poems to music, Cresties (2015), Puddled & Kallin (2016). The longer version of Cresties was featured last year at Wakefield Litfest and the prestigious Ilkley Literature Festival in 2015. October 2015 also saw the premiere of his first play 3 Characters at the Leeds 10×10 Drama Festival and his collaboration with RCM composer Amy Bryce, based on the story of The Green Children of Woolfit was premiered at the Leeds Lieder Festival in April 2016.

New Games with Dale Lafevre

Even if we find ourselves obeying rules of social distance , and cannot achieve the human knots of the past , Dale has New Games for social distancing , I hope we can all get under the parachute by August , but …

People are quite hungry for a chance to take a break from all the dire news. It’s like taking a breath of fresh air. It’s a chance to let all those worries go, to relax, get recharged. Play is needed now more than ever.

Imagining into life the future we want We are emerging from the pandemic into a new world.  The form this takes will depend on the imagination of all of us – what we envision and the stories we tell.   In this workshop, we will go on an inner journey to discover and connect with our own vision of the world we want to see, that sings to our hearts.
And you may see Doctor Hope in the field giving pop up consultations about your concerns about how the world’s going – and be given a “prescription”, based on what you say, to boost your hopefulness, and help you engage.
