To find out more about the event, and about Bryony, see how she takes her coffee. Liv Torc is well-known both locally and nationally: she appeared at The Bruton Poetry Platform in May followed by a performance at London’s Round House London, alongside Hollie McNish who was a great hit at WFL in 2015.
