A cold Tuesday night in early January and we get a packed first Poetry on the Spot of the year; so much so the emergency chairs had to come out.
Liz Magee and Carrie Carrie were brilliant POTS Players and improvised poems from prompts which included 'your eyes are covered with German tomatoes'. Guest Poet Peter John Cooper was on top form and the audience's contributions to a David Bowie inspired pair of crowd sourced poems were well thought out. Paul Canon Harris and Bob Hill Poet and Author are two very grateful hosts.
Brilliant choons and sound from Conrad Barr topped it off.
Next month we are back at Chaplins & The Cellar Bar on the 9th of Feb with guest poet Kim West and POTS Players tba.
