It’s toured the UK to five-star reviews, now Matt Abbott’s Two Little Ducks can be seen in Marsden for one night only.

This is a powerful, personal and political spoken word show from one of UK poetry’s rising stars.

"Matt does things that others may not be bothered with. Spending time in the jungle at Calais. Talking, living and taking in the lives of marginalised people. Refugees. People in desperate need. People who we should all identify with. He does."So comments John Darwin in our article. Read the article with more of John's comments: https://www.writeoutloud.net/public/blogentry.php?blogentryid=87954

Matt Abbott was volunteering at the Calais Jungle refugee camp when his native Wakefield voted 66% Leave. Why did so many working-class communities like his support Brexit so strongly? How can the UK ignore a humanitarian crisis just 22 miles from Dover? And does anything ever actually change for people like Maria?
