Teapoet’s May 8th Fundraiser is helping young artist Dan Clayton

An amazing line up for an amazing cause

An amazing line up for an amazing cause

Romsey’s TeaPoet Collective presents its annual community fundraiser on Sunday 8 th May. It will take place at Rum’s Eg gallery in Bell Street, and it will be supporting a young artist, Dan Clayton.

Dan suffered a couple of brain tumours at an early age which affected his balance and hearing, but he discovered a complete freedom through painting and drawing.

The landscapes and wildlife of his childhood in Zimbabwe continue to inspire his work, and his achievements include completing a painting degree at Winchester School of Art. The money raised from this event will enable him to set up an exhibition of his work at Rum’s Eg.

The afternoon poetry cafe will feature guest poets Caro Reeves and Lesley Scott. There will also be music from Les Kazoo’s D’amour and Panda-monium, and some spoken word open spots. The event

starts at 1:30pm. Admission is £5, all of which goes directly to supporting Dan’s exhibition.
