Dandifest's evening entertainment with Poetry in the Dark.
Held in St. Margaret's church of art. During the day Vince Laws held his lantern workshops out the front of the church. There was a sense of urgency which made the workshop even more exciting. Everyone was grabbing jars and stencilling leaves from the graveyard on the jars.
Letters painted on the jam jars and they spell out the words Dandy
These jars say Dandifest. Sitting in front of the 5th plinth as you enter the festival.
E. One of the letters on the plastic giant letters that break the large space up and create the feeling of walking into a butchers shop.
Poetry in the dark has had its first performance poem shared amongst friends. Vince Laws poem read performed by a array of performers in the audience, creating extra levels to the poem.
Candle lit church as it would have been for centenaries.

After show banter
Everyone has had fun at Poetry in the dark
Even John Lennon and Yoko Ono dolls get to chill out and listen to the poetry
Marcus Dickey Horley said he loves my Ai Wei Wei doll and has lots of stories to tell about the real Ai Wei Wei sunflower installation at the Tate.
