It's open mic night at the Poetry Café, so come and follow in the footsteps of Byron, Shelley, Milton, and Andrew Marvell, and bring your poems on the theme of 'Poems not Bombs'.

Special guest readers are Nicola Jackson and Paul McGrane, joint winners of the Geoff Stevens Memorial Poetry Prize 2017, who both have debut poetry collections with Indigo Dreams Publishing this month.

Nicola Jackson’s Difficult Women explores working women’s experiences. The defiant tone is testimony to women’s strength and determination in the face of the complexities of their lives.

Paul McGrane’s Elastic Man is a mix-tape of poems spanning political and  romantic themes with Elvis, Tommy Cooper and Denis Norden thrown in as a bonus.

The night is free and everyone is welcome. All you need to do is sign up on the night at 7 - 7:30pm to get your chance to read!
