It’s the monthly poetry slam at Last Pub Standing, Norwich hosted by former podcast guest Olly Watson and with another former guest John Osborne headlining.
“It’s Poetry Jim, but not as we know it.” Poetry for people who don’t like poetry, or can’t even read. Loud, raucous, heart warming, tender, might even make you cry.
6 poets battle it out for your votes. 3 minutes each to capture your hearts and minds.
Headlining this month we have the incredible John Osborne.
‘His work has a winning gentleness, a seductive voice that draws you in, ensnares you and captivates you.’ – Ian McMillan.
“Yes, I like these poems. There is a warmth, as you’d expect with a balaclava in the title.”
“John writes with the intelligence and wit of your favourite teacher but with the soul of a five-year-old boy. His poems capture the ‘un-finger-put-on-able’ moments.”
Think that says it all, too good to miss.
If that wasn’t enough, we have the soon to be world famous Vegan Meat Raffle.
All hosted by local poet, comedian and National Poetry Slam Finalist Olly Watson.
