Saturday 17 June
First Word

This family friendly show by international spoken word superstar Francesca Beard will feature her funniest and best mix of poems for kids and their adults. Aimed at all the coolest humans and their friends.


Francesca Beard was born in Malaysia and spent the 70’s growing up in Penang, an idyllic island paradise. Since then, life has been down-hill all the way, but with occasional slow climbs, like mowing a sloping lawn. After a spell in real jobs, she gave it all up to become a fictional character and now exists as a poet, performing to lucky audiences all over Britain and the World.
