The Element in the Room

Prepare to be enlightened. On the opening night of the first ever, Relight My Fire festival, join performance poet Matt Harvey as he premieres his new energy-inspired collection, 'The Element In the Room'. Currently poet-in-residence with Regen SW, (a centre for expertise in sustainable energy), Matt has gleaned some stimulating new material inspired by our love affair with energy. Where do we go from here? If anyone can make light of the situation, it's this man. Putting solar under the spotlight and giving wind-turbines a twist, Matt introduces a packed programme with featured poet Jackie Juno (Grand Bard of Exeter) and special guest speakers, Gill Wyatt (Director, Exeter Community Energy), Gabriel Wondrausch (MD, Sun Gift Solar) and Merlin Hyman (CE, Regen SW). Matt returns from a busy summer schedule with appearances at Way With Words, Womad and Edinburgh. The Bike Shed looks forward to welcoming the Wondermentalist and hearing his sparky new selection, with an exhilarating open slam finale and live music in the bar. If you want to change the world sustainably, discover your literary ammunition here. And, for one night only, guests will receive a copy of Matt's new illustrated poetry book absolutely free!
