Arts broadcaster Radio Wildfire is transmitting two outside broadcasts from Leamington Spa this Saturday. Featuring poets Julie Boden, who is poet-in-residence at Birmingham's Symphony Hall, and Jacqui Rowe, from Flarestack Poets, and others. The shows will mix original verse with chat and music.

Timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Mass Observation Movement the broadcasts will be a poetic snapshot of life in Leamington and residents and others are encouraged to submit their own contributions to the programme via the Submit page of the Radio Wildfire website (both recordings and text files). A selection of these will then be read out as part of the programme. The shows are introduced by poet Dave Reeves. For more information email
