Open mic spoken word events in pubs for comic and lighthearted literature
We only hold Pub Poetry in pubs with Real Ale, because poetry without beer is like a poorly thought out simile.
Monday 24th September 2012 at The Canalhouse
Everyone is welcome to come and read their own poems, short stories or songs. You’re also most welcome to read other people’s work – it’s a kind of poetry karaoke. We always need people to listen as well – so come on down whether you want to read, listen or just stare into your glass. Overly serious and pretention folk may not be listened to.
All the events are always FREE
Slots are determined on the evening and most people get to read as much as they like, one or two poems at a time so we get a good mix. There will also be the traditional limerick contest with amazing prizes (and yes, those are sarcastic italics), a good deal of drinking and general good cheer. Please join us!
You can find Pub Poetry on Facebook: Pub Poetry – click on ‘Like’ to get updates about events. We don’t have a specific Twitter account but @captainpigheart is the organiser so you’ll get updates through there and from @missimp_notts.
From an idea by Adrian Thompson who runs the marvellous Pub Poetry night at the Old Cottage Tavern in Burton on Trent.
