Yes the last ever poetry cafe will be at The Snug at The Lunar Hare, SP10 3AN.
We decided to move because our poetry community doesn’t need another poetry cafe. What we need are poetry workshops, critique sessions and a support group.
Alan and Helen at The Lunar Hare have a background in theatre. They understand the arts at the grass roots level needs support to thrive. Everyone one had to have started somewhere. As long as support them with tea, coffee and cake then they are happy to have us use The Snug.
What this means for Big Up Words is a little less fundraising and it will allow us to ask groups like Test Valley Arts foundation to bring up people like Dave Hubble and Matt West, who run excellent writing workshops. Plus Jonathon Jester of Yo Yo Goblin has offered us a workshop on how to perform in our Time Ring.
So our move makes sense…join us next Saturday for a intimate session of wonderful afternoon poetry.
