Annual Conference 2017 – Alice McCullough
Alice McCullough is a forerunner on the wave of spoken word talent rising in Belfast. Her award-winning poetry performances have captivated audiences, from her 'Alice Fresco' outdoor recitals to her critically acclaimed one-woman show 'Earth to Alice' her work has gained praise and recognition both in her hometown and beyond.
Having supported talents in poetry, comedy and music including Hollie McNish, Katherine Ryan, Tony Walsh and Lemn Sissay. Alice's unique way with words has won her a presence on local and international radio with poems commissioned for both television (BBC The Arts Show) and radio (BBC Talkback, BBC Arts Extra and U105).
"Great show - fragile but in control, real, and in the moment."
"Wonderful! I especially like the 'Love' poem - it is delightfully good."
"Alice is radiant when she reads her poems - she is one of the rare gems. Her words cover all corners as she quietly stamps down injustice and concocts poetry potions with equal part sadness and joy. Basically, she's bloody great."
"Alice is a strong and sensitive voice on the poetry scene in Northern Ireland whose poetry is well-deserving of a wider audience - She's a dead rare, red hair, Fred Astaire of words."
