Regular Events

Regular Events

We host regular poetry/ spoken word and creative writing events.  The interplay between the more visual arts and word/ literature based arts is fast becoming an interesting feature of the café.  As well as events we are keen to develop more impromptu opportunities for poets and spoken word artists. Feel free to give us a shout if you’d like to set something up… a workshop, a reading, a story-telling session, a writing group.  We are more than happy to try and facilitate your proposals and ideas.
