You can enjoy the content we have for this event but you can no longer book online for this event.
Aberystwyth Arts Centre, with members of our poetry group Word Distillery, invite you to an evening of Spoken Word, welcoming readings of both poetry and prose with performances by guest writers as well as Open Mic, led by local writer and performer Mike Smith. If you have five minutes of material you would like to share or road-test with an audience, then bring you and your words along! If you’re reading make sure you arrive early and sign your name with Mike at around 7pm as Chinwag always proves to be a massively popular event.
DAVID SUBACCHI, POET
David Subacchi was born in Aberystwyth and traces his local roots back to 1913 when his grandfather came to the town as a 15 year old immigrant from Italy. His family were in business in the town centre for most of the last century. He was educated locally at St Padarn’s Convent and Ardwyn Grammar School and then went on to read Law at the University of Liverpool. He has been a senior civil servant since 2004.
Since 1989 he has lived in Wrexham although he visits family and friends in Aber regularly. He is a member of North Wales Cross Border Poets, Chester Poets and Liverpool’s Dead Good Poets and regularly performs his work in England and Wales.
He writes in both English and Welsh and is the current holder of the Ceredigion Museum Poetry prize.
Cestrian Press published his English language collection ‘First Cut’ in 2012.
