The Ignite project was a collaboration between Apples and Snakes and Ealing, Hammersmith and Hounslow Samaritans. Young people from Ealing schools worked with poets Joseph Coelho and Aoife Mannix to produce poems on the theme of relationships and performed their work at the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith in July 2009.

Public Address tour
Time was, a poet never ventured out of his own manor. But now the interweb has turned the world into a global village, and we're all linking hands across the county boundaries. Not only that, but the theme of National Poetry Day 2010 is 'Home', so we thought it'd be a good chance for our poets to explore the precise nature of what home means. Is it wherever you lay your hat? And is heaven a place on earth?
Featuring Mark Niel, Hannah Silva, Matt Windle, Mike Edwards & Saran Green
