Venue :        We meet at Boothstown Community Centre. Parking is available behind the shopping precinct. There is disabled access and toilets.

Date/Time: Second Friday of the month, from 10am-12noon

There is a small charge (£3.00 per person) for each session to cover the cost of room hire.

Our aim is to enjoy the spoken words of poetry old and new which members bring along when we meet. Typically, we each introduce a small number of prepared poems, then read them and invite comment. We shall move from simply favourite poems to themes, poets and periods, dependent on interest.

You do not need to be a ‘buff’, a simple pleasure in the spoken word is enough. People tend to come along with their contribution and leave with a rich diversity of word and experience; the nature of communal sharing of language.
