After a 9 month refurbishment we have returned to our home at Covent Garden's Poetry Cafe.
There's more available seating in the basement venue, a new lift and AIR CONDITIONING!!!
Sign up in person between 6.45pm and 7.15pmbat the venue.
If the list is 25 readers and under then it's 5mins max per poet, 4 mins max if the list is 26 readers and over.
We never put a limit on the amount of readers so, as long as sign up in person on time, you will get a spot.
THERE WILL BE NO MORE EMAIL BOOKINGS FOR SPOTS FOR POETRY UNPLUGGED FROM JULY 2017 ONWARDS
Since our return to the Poetry Cafe a dramatic incrtease in demand for floor spots has resulted in lists of nearly fifty readers and to events running well past 10pm. It has also taken up a lot of my time replying to emails, time I don't have as the full time carer for two young daughters and a part time poet and lecturer.
Fear not though, the list will still be open for sign ups between 6.45pm-7.15pm on the night. This was previously the only way of signing up during our twenty year history and it appears that it worked that long for a reason.
I apologise if this inconveniences anyone, especially those that work later or live far away from London.
£5 full. £4 concessions and readers
