Jess Holly Bates will be performing as a guest of the Apples & Snakes spoken-word organisation based in London, with a huge thanks to the generosity of the New Zealand Society London for getting her over to them.

Jess performed alongside fellow PAGE 2 STAGE mentees Nalini Singh, Angela King and Kashka Tunstall in a showcase of high quality poetic works sure to be seen on a stage near you in the not-too-distant future.
