Due to venue closures because of Covid-19, Bard Company have had to postpone all dates on their 'Raising The Standards' tour until further notice. We are awaiting available dates to reschedule the gig at the Tudor House in Wigan, the Otley Labour Rooms and the Red Shed in Wakefield. The cancelled dates at the Northern Green Gathering and Wigan Diggers Festival have been rescheduled for 2021 with the same acts - so Bard Company should be on the bill at both these events next year.
18th March 2020
Regrettably I've had to cancel the open mic poetry sessions that I run ('Write Out Loud', Wigan and 'Getting Gobby In The Lobby', Wakefield) until further notice - due to the Covid-19 lockdown. I am keeping in touch with the venues and will restart the events once the current Covid-19 situation improves - until then, please 'LIKE' the individual pages to get further updates.
