Its 2021 and lots has gone on, despite very few actual public events. As Bard of Northampton, I have been honoured to talk about these on the radio, shared and engaged in online events and tried my best to help the community keep going :)
That means nothing without the support of every single person who has been to a bardic picnic since it began, the founders and organisers and every other spoken word event and writing workshop that has taken place, is taking place, or will be taking place!
More information about being a bard here [a book by one of the founders of the bardic picnic in Northampton]
