The event will include live poetry written and performed by students from Victoria Education Centre, supported by leading performance poets, Lic Torc and Johnny Fluffypunk. This will be followed by the first screening of a short documentary film about the project journey.

VIP’s are expected to attend, including local MP Tobias Ellwood, Councillors and the Mayors of Poole and Bournemouth alongside key local decision makers working in social care, health and education.

The audience will be invited to join the performers and project team for a short drinks reception following the performance.
