CoolTan Poets Perform at the Globe

The CoolTan Poets perform

at the

Shakespeare’s Globe

On 8th December 2016


The Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre annually has an event called Winter Concert. Last few years this event has become very popular.

The participants in this Event are by Invitation only. A number of schools in London Town and a few selected private music promotional groups participate in this event.

Each organisation presents a short musical programme. The total concert is about one hour in the first week of December.

.Two years ago the CoolTan Arts was invited to present a poetry Reading on the Theme of London. And the CoolTan presented a poetry Collage on War time London called “Southwark Calling”. It was short and smart and was very well presented by the “CoolTan Poetry Group called “Poetree”.

In the year 2016 the theme was “winter”. So far the poets had done their writing work and got used to the production. An expert from the Globe Theatre visited the group and helped the poets to plot down the words and how to say them at the Globe Theatre.

An expert art handicraft tutor called Amber helped them to produce artwork to take with them when they visited the Shakespeare’s Globe.

Their regular Tutor Kai oversaw that the work was well rehearsed.

The date of the “Winter Concert” was on November 8th at 02.00 P.M. at the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, on the South Bank.

    It was brilliant to see Sasha and the Poetry group at The Globe in December! You entertained the audience from start to finish with well-crafted poems and theatrical performances. Hope we get to see a lot more of the Poetry Group soon 🙂 Elizabeth
