I am Victoria Williams. This is my first blog post ever!
I am a poet, speaker and performer and I want to share what I do with the world! I have performed at many places up and down the country.
I want to tell you about a recent performance of mine, I was invited by Mayor Lindsay a Nottingham based poet, to perform at an event called Power in Poetry by More Culture Recording Studio, held at Britannia Hotel, Nottingham on Saturday 28th October 2017.
I was told that ‘…It’s Going To Be Another Great Night Of Entertainment’ and it did not disappoint. This event was the fifth year’s Anniversary Celebration of Power in Poetry. Power in Poetry consists of a diverse mix of poets from around the globe dedicated to raising awareness and participation of Poetry. It is designed to motivate, encourage and inspire both young and old to write and perform poems and give them a platform in which to perform their work, with family, friends and the community at large.
I wore a dazzling purple sequinned asymmetric top, with black palazzo trousers and was feeling quite glamorous and ready to do my best. I was most privileged to perform poems from my book titled, New Horizons of Hope.
I was the first poet on the stage and the crowd was eagerly anticipating what was going to happen. I read my poem called ‘Ingland Wen Me Did Jus Come Here’ which was well received by the audience. Then I sat and watched the other talent performing that night, performers such as Mayor Lindsay, Empress P, Treamondo, Laurel Robinson, More Culture and the Proud Survivor Band, Joe Cook, Melika The Violinist and a Saxophonist.
In the second half I recited my recently penned poem called….
‘I WANT A MAN’The audience clapped and made wholeheap of noise! They especially liked the last line from my poem
‘Long Hair is possible if you can only be-weave’
the crowd erupted and gave me a standing ovation!
All in all the evening was very enthralling with a diversity of poet’s and musicians.
