Book now

Join us to celebrate all things poetic on Monday 20th May at a Poetry Open Mic night in the Theatre Deli Bar! 

6:30pm Arrival with a sign up sheet. Names to be called out of a hat to make it fair and a running order will be made from this prior to starting.

5 minute slots each with the potential of reading and sharing more afterwards.

The event will be held in the Theatre Deli Bar, so grab a drink and bring a friend to come and support. Open mic to end at 9:30 with last orders at 10 (The venue closes at 10:30).

No parameters or limitations to what you can read: bring along your own work, one of your favourite poems, bring a piece of writing from your Notes App you've been wanting to share- we are an inclusive and supportive space! All we do ask is that you are mindful and respectful of others in your attitude and content.

We will also offer the option to film your poem to be made into a short film that we will later screen as part of Theatre Deli's Delivision project.

Submit a Poem to Our Zine

We are creating another instalment of our poetry/new writing zine! 

We welcome all original submissions (approx 1 page of A4 Max for each) Please send all submissions and any questions to [email protected].
