Poetry Night January 2010

Thanks to everyone who supported the most recent poetry night (January 2010). It was a record breaking attendance with over 60 folk packed into the function room at the Old Cottage Tavern. We had a brilliant selection of poems and monologues ranging from the traditional (Stanley Holloway) to the surreal and then a bit of JCC (thanks Tim!) We are looking forward to the next event in the summer.

Also thanks to all who supported our special poetry night in Nottingham. It was very well received and Pirate Nick and his pals will be organising regular Pub poetry nights at the Canal House on the second Monday of the month throughout 2010.

Summer Poetry Night July 2009

The next night of Culture, Real Ale & Poetry will be on Friday 3rd July 2009 at the Old Cottage Tavern, Byrkley Street. Burton-on-Trent. DE14 2EG. (Behind Burton Town Hall). Usual format. Starts at 8pm. Please encourage any friends with an interest to come along. Bring your favourite pieces of light-hearted poetry or monologues to share. We anticipate the usual high standard of highbrow yarns and sophisticated rhyming ribaldry (or perhaps not ). I hope the usual suspects will come along, together with some new faces.
