Sign up (or just turn up!) to read at this special second-edition one-off Peter Barlow’s Cigarette open mic event to raise funds – everyone is welcome. They say: “Bring us your new poems, your old favourites, your wild forays against the darkness, your gentlest serenades, or whatever else you please to bless us with. If anyone feels like bringing a poem for the late Mark E Smith, that’s very welcome, though by no means a condition of entry.” It’s £2 on the door (or pay as you can afford) and proceeds will go towards the regular Saturday-afternoon showcases of great poetry talent, letting the organisers contribute to travel costs for those from further afield.

Contributions of £2 welcome on the door.
