Come along and share your own poems or your favourite poems by other authors.

Poets Out Loud

Our very own Annie Kendal is launching Poets Out Loud: For writers, readers and listeners from Cumbria and beyond. All are welcome to a most informal evening of poetry at Kirkgate Arts.

  • It WILL be for listeners, not just writers. Lovers of poetry and the spoken word who would like to just sit and enjoy the prose are most welcome.
  • It WON’T be like an open mic where you have to stand up in front of an audience and perform.
  • It WON’T be a writing group where suggestions or criticisms can be made.
  • It WILL be an easy, relaxed gathering in the auditorium, with a mix of tables and chairs or theatre seating to sit upon and refreshments available throughout the evening from the theatre bar.

Poets and audience will share the space as the poems work their way around the room. Poetry of all types, styles, levels and topics. If you have never shared your works in public before don’t worry. Once you settle in for the evening you’ll soon see you’re not really in public and you’ll love it.
