ThePoetry Spoke 6th June mini- review

A fantastic night at ThePoetry Spoke, just great to be apart of it :) Full of warmth, quality and character - we loved it!

Helen Maher Was fantastic - European Bohemia under blue stage lights. Ged Thompson compared brilliantly along with Glenys Feeney, they did us proud on a night where I counted 42 of us at one point! That took some juggling!

According to the bar, we numbered higher with poets slipping into the beer garden and downstairs for real ale. Natalie noted 17 audience members; almost unheard of at poetry events, and the standard of poetry - wow! Not sure it gets any better :)

Really glad everyone enjoyed the night - Thx to everyone who made it such a success. Thx especially to Nicki Leighton for the kind gesture in adding to the raffle prizes. See everyone soon... We drifted off into a warm night with vino :)

Photographs and film to appear on the website in the coming weeks...

Check out the rest of the website. We have a complete video archive of poetry and music to enjoy

Sounds like a great night Chris - if you can pull a big crowd it always makes for good atmosphere and better performances from everyone I think. I'm glad the new venue is working out - did you get that pole installed? ;)

Yea I think it was the most successful poetry night on the Wirral since the opening night of the Morton Arms. That night had around 51 poets, so we couldn't quite match that - but even so.

The pole? Mmmm we'll have to look into that ;)
