Poetry In The Pub

October 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


At this perennial LitFest favourite we run an Open Mic session hosted by Alex Hickman.

This year we are asking for poems on the theme of Freedom. We invite all of whatever age to submit poems on this theme. Kayo Chingonyi, who opens LitFest on National Poetry Day, will be joining this session.

To participate submit a poem in advance to Alex at or you can simply turn up on the day with your poem. Poems submitted in advance will be read first. Alex Hickman blogs at

Non-poets are welcome to come too – we hear the ale is good!
