I know I wish I will coronavirus statement

Dear friends,

Due to the very latest Government Coronavirus advice and guidance, it is with the greatest regret that Eastside will be cancelling the I know I wish I will live poetry marathon event planned to take place at The Criterion Theatre this Friday 20th March and Saturday 21st March 2020.  

In the spirit of using our creativity to the full, we are now launching a Digital Stage for our I know I wish I will poems in order to celebrate World Poetry Day and Eastside’s 25th Birthday on Saturday 21st March 2020 – find out more information here.

Our goal is to ensure that all of the creativity and hard work that the project has generated can be put to great use as we all enter a period in which everybody’s daily lives are disrupted and in which art and creativity could help us make sense of the challenges we face.

Our wish in sharing the work in this way is that we will be able to provide hope and encouragement to new audiences that we are able to reach, wherever they may be at this time.
