Thank you a million fold for last night. What a lovely event, and the book is great.
Thanks for organising last night.
Thanks for last night; also including my piece in the book, I feel very
I echo what Geoff Holland has said - oh, what a night! I think the other readers and musicians agree with me on a well-organised event and the venue was an apt and well-chosen place to perform - balcony readings from the gods of artistry...
Thanks from me too! What an amazing venue!
Thanks again, plus I can tell you that Barbara Hadaway and John and Maria loved the night.
I would like to add my own thanks - it really was a special evening.
The book itself is great and it was amazing to see inside the Mining Institute, hear Mr Jackson's lecture, and then enjoy the readings and music and the Institute's hospitality...the New Hartley Lament on the northumbrian pipes was something I'll never forget.
Thanks for all your hard work!
Just literally came in from work and want to say what a great night last night was!!! Cynth and me enjoyed it very much, there is just something about Newcastle. We both enjoy being there, the Institute is an amazing place, it knocked us both out!!! What an exquisite place to hold an event, we enjoyed the ride up, the talk by Norman Jackson, the readings the whole evening in fact, so well done!!! Nice one Keith and many thanks for including my poem in your great book I hope I didn't let you down with my reading).
I would just like to voice my thanks also for a very memorable evening. The venue was spectacular and very apt. The whole evening was very well planned, including breaks for refreshments. I was gripped by Norman Jackson's presentation and the launch was a good mix of music, poetry and prose.
just read all the comments re thursday evening. john and i would echo everything that was said, we had a lovely evening, the lecture was really interesting and gave a good insight of what happened at hartley, it left us feeling we wanted to know more. the music and poetry were excellent and the pipes well they were something else, especially the tune written for the anniversary of the disaster.

Congratulations on organising such a wonderful event on Thursday and for putting together such a beautiful new book of superb poetry and prose - all the contributions are fantastic and it is a book to treasure, so my thanks and congratulations to all involved. Chris's specially composed new piece of music is also superb and apt.
