I'll be exhibiting at the forthcoming Norwich Pride Without Prejudice show at St Margaret's Church of Art, St Benedict's Street, Norwich, which launches on Sunday 22 July from 6-9pm (all very welcome) and then runs until Saturday 4 August.

I'm running a Paint Your Own Plaque Workshop (or bring a charity shop plate/mug/whatever to adapt?) on Tuesday 24 July at St Margaret's Church of Art from 2-4-30pm, free/make a donation.

I will be performing at the Pride Tea Party at the Tea Lounge on Ber Street on Friday 27 July from 4-6pm, then watching the Olympic Opening Ceremony with the Pride posse at the Norwich Arts Centre from 7pm, before making live art and performing at the Dysfunctional Room later that night.

On Norwich Pride day, Saturday 28 July, I'll be about! Hope to get to the Forum to listen to the Any Questions debate, then to Chapelfield Gardens where I'll do a few poems from the bandstand, then the Parade, then I'll do a couple of poems on the main stage, then I'm co-hosting The Norwich Dandies Do the Diamond Jubilee with Olympian Pride at The Loft, from 5pm-Midnight, expect art darlings, poetry, projections, drama, djs, fancy fucking dress, only £2 entry and that all goes to Pride - so come and support us - we're doing this for nothing because we want to!

Sunday 29 July it's the 2nd annual Cromer Pride from 2pm - the only Pride in the country that takes place on a beach! I'm performing and introducing the acts for the first 2 hours. And collapse.

All the best
