Better Off Said: Eulogies for Living and the Dead

Better Off Said: Eulogies for Living and the Dead

5:00pm, Sun 4 July, 2021

Event Details


From members of the team behind international literary phenomenon Women of Letters comes a new spoken-word art salon celebrating words, stories, and human experiences.

Better Off Said: Eulogies for the Living and Dead is afternoon of words it’s time to air.  Is there something you always wish you’d shouted aloud, someone still out there in the world waiting to hear an important message, a piece of history you feel your voice could have improved?  Now is the opportunity to leave no verbal stone unturned.  To find your closure.  To sing your truth from the rooftops before it’s too late.

On the afternoon of the first Sunday of each month, four guests will speak to the phrase "What I wish I’d said", and a special guest will deliver a Living Eulogy, to someone or some thing, to celebrate the best in our lives while we're all still hear to hear it. There'll also be a musical performance to help make each salon special.

Presented by Emilie Zoey Baker and Marieke Hardy.

Guest speakers confirmed for Sunday 4th July to be announced.
