A good night - I'd agree with Dave, very well compered by Darren. It had the appearance of being enjoyably disorganised whilst running to time - no mean feat.

A high standard of poetry interspersed with moments of madness.

What an enjoyable evening. Very well compered by Darren whose anarchic verbal duelling with hecklers was a delight. Joy, Louise and Dave Carr stood out for me but there were also excellent contributions from Chris Co, Steve Smith, Julian, Ian W, George, Baz, Shaz and many others. I was especially struck by Rachel's poem about Saharan dust and Isobel's about her daughter's stone collection. I've never seen Matt so uninhibited. Darren gave his "we are MEN" another fun run out and then morphed it into we are ...poets...Wiganers... There was no limit to what we could be, and we believed him. All rounded off with another mystifying offering from John T which even Darren couldn't understand. I believe Greg's coming next time - he's in for a treat.
