Last year we launched a new talent development programme Boat Poetsworking with young emerging spoken word artists and poets on residencies in the wheel houses of river boats, barges and tugs to create new voices of the River Thames. 

Rachel Nwokoro is a poet, storyteller and writer, and was resident with Livett's Launches. Catch her Boat Poet commission Green Tea in the Wheelhouse.

A Thames Festival Trust talent development programme in collaboration with Roundhouse and National Poetry Library.  

Supported by Tideway, City of London, Bennett’s Barges, Livett's Launches and MBNA Thames Clippers.
