11th Bard of Northampton, Kezzabelle Ambler introduces her one-woman spoken word tour with Mental Health Awareness Week fast approaching on 15th May. Her 6th book ‘Permission to Love Yourself’ comes to The Playhouse Theatre in Northampton on Thursday 15th June 2023 then travels the country. The Playhouse was the very first place that Kezzabelle ever braved the stage with her performance poetry back in 2009. Combining her regular countrywide headline bookings with her upcoming one-woman spoken word show, Kezzabelle wants to encourage mental health decision-makers nationwide to welcome her and her creative expression workshops into their occupational therapy sessions while she is in their locality. She wants to enable people to express, heal and play with words to give them a voice and for their stories to be heard.
Spending time in a psychiatric unit can be scary for patients losing their liberty alone. Creative facilitators like Kezzabelle bring a bright relief and release, bringing the outside world in. Her ‘Weaving Words’ creative writing workshops give people an opportunity to unlock their thoughts and feelings onto the page as well as colourful imaginings from prompts, too, often bringing a sense of calm and clarity when it matters most.
