A Spooky Evening of Spoken Word

Date: 25 October 2019

Determined fundraiser Gill Barker has lined up yet another charity evening for Yorkshire Cancer Research as part of her ’35 before 35’ challenge.

This time the 34-year-old will embrace Halloween at a spooky evening of spoken word and poetry at Headrow House, Leeds.

The Night Vision event is set to take place from 7:30pm on Tuesday, October 29, and will feature readings from two published local writers, Naomi Booth and Amina Alyal. 

Those who attend will also have the chance to perform their own spoken word at an open mic session.

In the run up to her 35th birthday, Gill is completing 35 physical and mental challenges that push her beyond her comfort zone. Her challenges so far have included training with Leeds Rhinos, running the entire length of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and completing a live radio interview.

Gill, who is also raising funds for Leeds Mind, said: “We had such a great response and turn out at our last Night Vision fundraising evening, so we wanted to hold another event and give others an opportunity to perform their work. And what better theme than Halloween! 

“This haunting special will also include a spooky poetry open mic section so please bring your stories of ghosts, ghouls and horrors; all contributions must be kept at seven minutes or under. It’s set to be a Spooktacular evening!”
