POETRY PERFORMANCE will be returning to the upstairs room of the Adelaide pub on 1st August 2021. In the meantime it is still on Zoom which provides an ‘open mic’ virtual venue for amateurs and professionals who like to read and perform their poetry. The evening is hosted by an MC who will introduce the poets and an optional poetry theme is suggested for each month. Performers must sign up in advance for a time slot. As before a featured poet is invited to make a guest appearance and will be in discussion with the host MC to talk about their work and to perform a short selection of their poems.
To reserve a spot please contact Anne Warrington on email@example.com.
Should you wish to go on our mailing list please get in touch with Tricia Brown on firstname.lastname@example.org . She will send you a form to sign that grants PP permission to contact you directly with copies of our Newsletter and other information. Tricia is the wife of Bob Sheed, the poet who founded Poetry Performance with Anne Warrington.
Although we are returning to the Adelaide Pub on 1st August 2021 Zoom sessions will continue for those who find it difficult to make the journey to our home in Teddington. We are now attracting readers based in America and New Zealand, an exciting development.
Luther Poets is PP's workshop. It was founded by Bob Sheed as Luther Road Poets and is now convened by Anne Warrington. The group is compiling an Anthology of poems called 'Through the Keyhole' in memory of Bob. Watch out for more information.
