About Us

Poetry Plus is the name of the poetry group which meets monthly in Manningtree, Essex. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, in the convivial surroundings of The Red Lion pub so refreshments are always available! We have now been meeting for twenty-eight months - much to our mutual suprise and joy - so onwards & upwards, as they say! We usually attract between 15 and 20 friendly people but 29 has been our record! Full details of our next meeting are available on our website:

What we do

The whole evening is an open mic session enjoyed by a wide cross-section of ages, backgrounds and interests - and it's a lot of fun!

All poems are copyright of the originating author. Permission must be obtained before using or performing others' poems.

I joined Poetry Plus in July this year and a more welcoming group and pleasant atmosphere one would be hard pressed to find! The focus is on reading poetry, pure and simple. The October meeting gives a good idea of the eclectic material that one can expect to hear. As well as attendees having the opportunity to read their own work there were pieces from such well known names as Sir John Betjeman, Mya Angelou, Pam Ayres, Yeats and W H Auden. Themes covered such diverse material as homelessness, the countryside and Bruegel's Fall of Icarus! Several readers also took the opportunity to read Halloween themed poems. If you can, do give Poetry Plus a try. A warm welcome and stimulating evening await!
