Our evening at the TMAC in Heathfield went down a storm with a healthy crowd, mainly populated by staff and pupils from the Castle School.

    The evening kicked of in fine stlye with Liv Torc, performing her poems with wit and charm, spit and polish to an all ears crowd istening to her meetings with mascerators, men with beards, super hero pants and unforgetable beautiful faces.

    We then went LIVE via laptop and facetime to Dom Buck's kitchen, aka BOXABEAT UK (with the help of our own Super Hero "tech Man' Kevin), complete with a close up tour of kettle and coffee mug, to hear a rendition of highs and lows, growls and rumbles, base and trebles from his curling lips and dextrous tongue, all projected onto a screen standing 15 foot high!

    After much laughter and things going dafter, audience participation and appreciation, questions and answers and a beatbox battle we moved seamlessly into the world of words and stories with Michael Loader telling a riddling story from Georgia, where the audience were invited to solve three riddles to save the King to be...

    We then heard a poem that the audience created in the moment (curated by Liv) inspired by the Platypus.

    The evening came to a tumultous ending when members of the audience stepped into the light and picked up the mic to regale us with rap, beatbox, stand up comedy replete with much fun, laughter and joy.

    Audience feedback...

    "Excellent interactive experience"

    "Good everytime, hope to see you again"

    "Great show"

    "It was a great showcase for young people to share with an audience what they love doing"

    "Would you come again?" "YES!"

    With the success of this evening Somerset Storyfest will be looking into ways of creating more BEAT TELL IT SPEAK nights at the TMAC. Keep in touch. Tell your friends.
