Thanks to everyone who sponsored Universal Children’s Day and came down to Pop Brixton.
Celebrating youth diversity and identity, we heard from 2 of the poetry competition winners; Riley Bo Russell who read her winning poem ‘My Story’ and Abi Forrest, the runner-up with ‘Never Irreparably Broken’.
Performances on the day from Ellesha Ross & Nathaniel with their singing / beat-boxing mash up; south London rapper Bully and spoken word artist She Speaks True provided a good variety of entertainment for the audience.
Kazeem from UK group Rough Copy encouraged people to have a dream but to make sure they set goals to work towards in order to make that dream come alive.
The theme of the 2016 poetry competition was set on the very relevant topic of ‘War & Peace’. Details on how to enter can be found here
Footage of the event will be posted soon
