Mother’s Day at Dark Woods, with Kate Fox

DarkWoodsCoffee-Cafe-1

We are partnering with Huddersfield Literature Festival to bring you something special for Mothering Sunday. Dark Woods is one of this year’s Festival venues and we are hosting the brilliant stand-up poet, comedian and writer – Kate Fox.

Kate is Stand Up Poet, Kate Fox, coming to Dark woods on 6 March 2016regularly on Radio 4 and occasionally on TV. She has written and performed two comedy shows for Radio 4 called “The Price of Happiness”, which has just been commissioned for a second series. Her poetry residencies have included: Saturday Live on Radio 4 from 2007-14, the Yorkshire Festival, 2014, the Glastonbury Festival 2013 and the Great North Run, 2011. She also writes topical and personal pieces for Standard Issue magazine and was a columnist for The Journal newspaper for four years.

Kate has also led many participatory arts projects and school and community writing projects and sometimes runs spoken-word gigs and projects. Her obsessions include solo stand up performance, Northernness and how comedy and creativity can turn the world upside down – or keep it still. She has never gone viral apart from when she’s had a nasty cold. Kate’s website.
