Past Events and Recordings

Launch of A Commonplace, 2 August 2020

Jonathan was joined for the launch of A Commonplace: Apples, Bricks and other People’s Poems‘ by the poets Sue Brown, Gregory Leadbetter and Jo Bell and by his editor, Peter Sansom. In what turned out to be a not unpleasant 90 minutes, Jonathan and his guests talked widely about poetry and read a few poems. The event also featured audio recordings of two of Jonathan’s poems read by Zoë Chapman and by Mollie Davidson. Jo Bell compared with wit and ruthless timekeeping, the WiFi became upon occasion unstable but Jonathan didn’t, and as far as we know everyone got home safely.

The Swindon Spring Festival of the Arts and Literature, May 10, 2020

What is your stepping off point into poetry? Do you want to experience poems as truly lived art-forms? Would you like to explore a little more?

Having spent a lifetime seeking ways to release poetry into the wild, by making poetry-theatre performances for the stage and radio, by publishing poetry books and pamphlets, by working with poets in India, Ukraine, the Baltic States, and Central America, and by curating festivals, Jonathan Davidson has had a go.

Now, in his latest book, A Commonplace: Bricks, Apples & Other People’s Poems, he takes this quest a step further.
