Cushions and poetry


Call Out for Cushions with poetry! Who’s up for customising a cushion for our Spoken Word event on 9th Feb so that people who are standing have a soft spot to plonk down on … all shapes , styles and sizes welcome , but ALL to be customised with some lines from a POEM you LOVE , sewn , scribbled , painted or printed onto a patch on the cushion (Don’t tell me you DON’T have an extra cushion or two kicking around )

At the end of the night , we’ll sell them to raise funds for Freedom from Torture!

If you can’t come on the night , your cushion can support someone else’s bahoochie. Email us on if you fancy being part of this adventure.
