Hello, hello, it is us you’re looking for?

Probably. We’re Norwich’s premier boutique poetry event and we’ve had a month off so you’re probably gagging for a big top-notch word action curtesy of some of the UK’s best poets.

This month we have Hannah Silva who in 2008 was named as one The Times’ top 10 literary stars. She’s experimental, edgy and absolutely captivating. There is NO ONE like her on the poetry scene and you will not want to miss it. She lives in Plymouth (or somewhere down there) so we’ve done a bloody good job even getting her to the wilds of Norfolk, don’t miss it folks.

Supporting we have the sublime Andy Mac, he of Dark Aunt fame. We’ve been told he is bringing one Dark Aunt with him, so our little club can experience he trademark blend of dark, sweet words and strange, dark melodies.

Martin Figura, our resident ex-military man has some new stuff. The chances are it’ll be great, it usually is. John Osborne is going to compere and be all forceful and organisy (not a word) which will be exciting. He’s also got new stuff to read to you.

It all starts at 7.30pm sharp. It costs a fiver. It’s in Norwich. Don’t be a wally, come.
