About the Event
As part of The Newport Rising Festival 2019 , commemorating 180 years since the Chartist Uprising of 1839 whilst bearing witness to 2019 with the release of a new poetry album ‘Renegade Psalms’ with Membranes’ frontman John Robb , I am setting out on a journey to find out what people will stand up for today. An evening of spoken word. Ideas. Debate. Protest. Hope. Special guest performers at each reading plus open mic. Come and have your say in creating a People’s Charter for today.
The final performance of his tour of 'Renegade Psalms' sees Patrick Jones, Eric Ngalle Charles and guests on stage at the Westgate Hotel, giving an intimate reading of his new works along with an open mic session, music and discussion. This spoken word/poetry performance accompanies the release of Patrick's album of the same name (Renegade Psalms) which is available at Louder Than War Records -

Dedicated to my father, John Allen Jones, who first planted the seed of The Chartists into my soul
From “A song For May”
‘People, rise! and arm thee well! Hope, that care cannot dispel, Self-reliance, firmly wrought, Wisdom by Experience taught, Thrift and order, courage true, These are arms to lead us through! Wield them now—as you would thrive!— Onward! 'tis the time to strive!’
From a recent number of the Court journal we learn that the Queen, in consideration of the sufferings of her starving subjects, has been "graciously pleased" that the crumbs of bread from the Royal tables should be given to the Poor, instead of being thrown into the dust-bin.
Ernest Jones, chartist poet 1842
“Thoughtful, provocative and challenging, these poems engage and enrage"
“Very strong stuff” Harold Pinter
