Thank you Hub Festival Cardiff 2019 for once again providing stages for all kinds of art and performance, including visual arts, music, comedy and various spoken word shows, including two from MEGAVERSE at this lovely place…
UPSTAIRS AT BEELZEBUBS
FEATURE PERFORMER – GARETH DAVIES
Organiser/Host – WILL FORD
He’ll reel you in with story hooks, go HERE and buy his book!
He’ll whisper, he’ll shout, he’ll feel every emotion and turn them into words
Faith in the light, even in the darkest times
BRIDGET LEGGY TANNER
Soft on the surface, strong inside, is that chocolate? Mmmm…open wide!
Prior moving to Arizona, giving out considered, evocative words
before leaving on that jet plane…
THE JACK TEDDINGTON SHOW
The public face of a jolly TV host starts to crack…performed by Gordon Anderson
Traversing the ever crossing undercurrents of the individual psyche that as with many of us have us pleased with life and somehow also frustrated by it
Self revealing, ever searching for the right words, somehow never quite at rest
Left wing and loud about it, The Hooligan Poet stands up for himself and others
cutting, sometimes electrifying words…
At the time of writing, Alix has a exhibition of her art going on…LINK
Satirical, self questioning, will give you advice on ‘trips’
Firmly in the camp that believes Boris is a Johnson
When there is so much fear to conquer…people bang on about CAKE???
GARETH DAVIES RETURNS
More expansive and uplifting words to bring matters to a finish!
Phew! Thank you all, and thank you Gareth…but it’s not over yet…
…the very next day…
DOWNSTAIRS AT BEELZEBUBS
Opening proceedings…Host WILL FORD
Prolific producer of stories and rhymes including
strangely funny creepy valentines
Confidence behind the mic befitting her words of struggle towards self-discovery,
acceptance and the strength gained on the journey
Wants you to stop rating everything online and really live among fellow humans
CULT OF DORIS
Surrender to the cult, of comedic self assertion and ‘do not mess’ attitude
Soulful acapela song, spoken word, consummate performer
Straight outta Swindon, with comedic high speed delivery, for this event, anyway, he does many, and words that cut as deep as life are often his jam
After accidentally photo bombing Clive Oseman, dropping words often borne of personal growth, and like so many of us, finding self and strength through the spoken word
French love songs, going to the moon, cannibalism, Daggers strikes!
Host Will Ford…It’s BOOTY SONG TIME!
Swansea Slam 2019 Champion performing after running a half marathon!
Realities of the process of, motherhood, loss, sharing joys and her spotlight.
AMELIA UNITY DUETS
WITH FRANCESCA MURPHY
AMELIA UNITY DUETS
WITH LOUISE BAMFORD
Then, after 2 days of all kinds of gently intoned and merrily bellowed and soulfully sung and angrily expressed and humorously hollered wordscapes, when Amelia was finished, so was MEGAVERSE at HUB Festival 2019
