October RARA Hosts
Will and Dave at HUB FESTIVAL CARDIFF 2018 during MEGAVERSE!

Whether you have never shared your words before or are an experienced performer you are warmly invited to join us and experience the welcome, the attention, the encouragement and the appreciation of RARA.
An especially successful RARA!

Every RARA is a different experience, semi-regularly hosted by guest hosts from RARA regulars who after being warmly received often end up wondering what it might be like to act as compere, and we say, if you want to find out, give it a try and we will be there with you to offer all the support, advice and encouragement you need!

The kind management of the Mackintosh Sports Club, Roath, Cardiff generously allow us this monthly platform so that writers from Cardiff and beyond can showcase five minutes of anything they wish as long as it is made of words!

Come, be moved, be amused, be surprised!
Come, move, amuse or surprise others!

Between them, Dave and Will, with the generosity of the Mackintosh Sports Social Club keep RARA running and the door open to all.

COME TO RARA! Enter the world of Spoken Word!
See where you can take it!
See where it can take you!

Second Tuesday every month, Arrive at the Mackintosh Sports Social Club, Keppoch Street, Roath, Cardiff from 7.30pm for approx 8pm start. RARA.


Both Dave and Will like to experiment with different forms of creativity and are very serious about what they do, even if what they do is not always about being serious. On the serious side, Dave has used his photographic skills to help thousands of students celebrate their graduation days and help the work/raise the profile of Touch Trust. And will has just been made Featured Artist of The Week on the Arts For Health and Wellbeing blog  for his work with Cardiff University Health Board.

Freedom to be either serious or silly and for both to be equally welcomed is at the heart of RARA, where what YOU want to say, however you wish to say it, is the most important thing. Dave and Will both embody this ‘ethos’ and love to amuse, but also both have had their more serious sides showcased in exhibitions, in fact, Will’s words (and those of Hilary Griffiths) have been used as inspiration by artists at Cardiff Print Workshop for an exhibition of dozens of pieces of work at an exhibition that happened recently Dave Daggers, a longtime professional photographer, generously visited to take these pics. 

Dave’s work has been featured in many more exhibitions than Will’s
