This year it has not been possible to hold Falmouth's Christmas Tree Festival as we usually would at Princess Pavilion and Gyllyngdune Gardens, but we were determined that this much loved event would still be celebrated, albeit in a different way. The Festival itself has gone virtual, although The Mayor of Falmouth, Steve Eva, has kindly donated a beautiful tree to display at Gyllyngdune Gardens grown locally by Paul and Joy Watts on their Christmas Tree farm down the road at Playing Place, so that there is still a little bit of actual Christmas sparkle to brighten people’s day.

Which of us has never tried, in their life, to experiment with words and little poems to express feelings and emotions that could not otherwise be expressed? Sometimes this is a tricky process though, as the blank page looks scary and daunting, often making us giving up. Black out poetry can help to overcome this obstacle and free ourselves from inhibitions. The world is full of hidden poetry that awaits to be discovered. Blackout poetry (also known as Caviardage) is a creative method of deep personal exploration through a process of creation (or unveiling) of a visual and poetical message. MATERIAL
