Pub Poetry – 8pm tonight at Canalhouse 6 Nov 2017

Pub Poetry: Open Mic Comic Lit

Monday 6th November

The Nottingham Comedy Festival surrounds up, but through the fog of potential shows, Pub Poetry is a beacon of spoken word fun.

A fun, free and informal night of light hearted and downright comic spoken word and poetry in a pub. Without beer, literature is nothing. Bring your favourite amusing poems, stories or songs, whether they are yours or someone else’s. It’s a celebration of funny words to brighten a Monday. All jolly good fun. See you there, and bring a friend. There’s no need to book a slot in advance, but if you’d like to contact me beforehand, feel free to contact Nick.

Starts at 8pm with periods of reading, drinking and writing limericks.  There will be poetry books lying around, so if the urge takes you…

A fun, free and informal night of lighthearted and downright comic spoken word and poetry in pubs with Real Ale: without beer, literature is nothing.

Bring your own poems, short stories, songs – whatever you have, as long as it involves words and might be funny. If you don’t want to read your own, bring someone else’s. Or you can just come and listen, have a drink and a giggle and meet some new folk.

There’s beer, there’s spoken word and there will be a limerick competition.

There’s no need to book a slot in advance (it’s much more casual than that!), but if you’d like to contact me beforehand, feel free to contact Nick at [email protected]

Starts at 8pm with periods of reading, drinking and writing limericks. All jolly good fun. See you there!

We’ll have some poetry books lying around, so if the urge takes you…
