For the 7th day of artists, our latest feature involves someone who has been working with Undegun from the very begging, starting off as a Glyndwr University English student coming along to the space and wanting to bring more spoken word events to Wrexham. Two years later Tim Humpherys-Jones is still with us present Voicebox every second Monday with the loving support of his Wife Jade and an amazing group of spoken word artists that support and represent the scene within Wrexham.
