The Bardic Trials 2019
Venue: York House Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford
Date: 18 Jan 2019
Be the BoSS! the quest for the next Bard of Stony Stratford (BoSS) begins...
If you're over 18 and have a way with words (poetry, stories, song, rap, or comedy) then you could be the Ninth Bard. Anyone who lives within a days' walk of Stony Stratford (12 miles or slightly more if you're a fast walker) may apply. Applications open on 1st December 2018 and close on 6th January 2019. Full details of the Bardic requirements and community commitments are available at www.bardofstony.weebly.com. The successful Bardic contenders will then meet in open competition at the Bardic Trials (18th January 2019, York House Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford 7.30pm) where the good people of Stony Stratford will make their choice. The choice of the people is the voice of the people.
Apply to be Bard or come along to cast your votes after seeing the performances of the Bardic contenders. There will also be additional entertainment from local performers, as well as a headlining set from Hannah Chutzpah ("Poet, performer, writer, activist, smartass" - www.hannahchutzpah.com). She's a Five-Star Review performer! Be a Bard or be democratic. Either way we need you!
ps. It will be a fun evening. It's free though there will be a voluntary Bardic collection. Bardic Bar available (not free). Meet the Mayor and kick off the opening night of Stony Words 2019 in fine style!
