A rough and tumble, veritable BYOP (The ‘P’ stands for Poetry)!

A night where all are welcome to read and contribute, sharing poetry with all and sundry, alongside the Arts Lab and headliner act of Salena Godden! We’ll also be featuring the musical brilliance of Carly Loasby, Amii Dawes and Frederick J. Taylor, led by our magnificent compere of Lindsay Spence, who is fast becoming the Lab’s lucky charm. And if we’re very lucky, a certain bearded Mandrill may make an appearance too… We are a lucky lot.
It will be a mix of media, with musical performances, videos, live readings and whatever else may show up on the night. It’s sure to be an eclectic night of words and wonder and weirdness. Hopefully will have just one (or if we’re very lucky, more) things to announce even closer to the time!

FAQs

  • What can I bring into the event?
    • Your own poetry! There’s no set list of those who can and can’t perform, and if you feel you want to read a piece go for it. Just let one of the organizers know on the night and we’ll sort your out with a spot.
    • Please note that you will have a maximum of a ten minute slot to perform, so don’t try bringing along your version of the Iliad. However, there is no limit on the number of slots you can perform in, so if you would like to perform a couple poems, take a break and perform some more, that’s fine by us.
    • If you bring along a guitar and want to sing a song, that counts too as I guess songs are like poetry with more strumming?
  • How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
    • You can contact us via our Twitter or Facebook, and we will respond as quickly as possible.
