"PRESS REVIEWS"

"Dylan Thomas meets X-factor" the BIG ISSUE

"The Dark Carnival itself encourages the audience to move around the Old Vic Tunnels experiencing the art that they come across. At one table, the performance poet Andreas Grant asks us to sit down and gives us a personal reading from a menu of various themes. Being soppy souls, we opt for romance and are then treated to a couple of minutes of live poetry as Andreas recites with brio and without notes a poem he wrote on the topic" The Londonist

"We also stumbled upon the verses of Andreas Grant who took us to one side and offered us a menu offering food for the soul in the form of "Speed Poetry" themes. We opted for an 18+ for a spicy starter, then a thriller to sink our minds into for the main course rounded off with sweet romance for dessert. Grant referred to his files for the first two, expertly delivering his reading with confidence, then conjured up the final piece from the recesses of his mind for a heart-warming romantic finale" Zap! Bang! Magazine review The Dark Carnival

"Splendid and clever, with lots of dynamic and surprising phrases" Nikk Quentin Wolf, The Art Show, Xstream East Radio

"Andreas Grant...High class/crass/camp king of the unexpected" Poets On Frie

"Poems of vision and voyage" Art Terry, Is Black Music, Resonance FM

"Poetry is a brave expose' of one’s vulnerability and Andreas Grant set a contagious tone....Indeed, it was an unforgettable occasion." An Audience with Oliver James - Big Issue, The Londonist, Zap! Bang! Magazine, XstreamEast Radio, Poets on Fire, Art Terry Resonance
