A quick reminder – this month we shall be meeting on Monday, October 13th, in The White Hart, Sadler Street. The room is on the ground floor at the back, and will be in use by another group until 7.30. Rachael will be in the chair and the (optional) topic will be “Nearly”.

We have received the following details of Stand-up Poetry’s first event at Burdall’s Yard – they were formerly based at BRLSI.

Bath Spa University’s Poetry Centre showcases the art of reading and performing poetry. We welcome the best contemporary poets from the UK in shows that explore their full range of works, we also encourage extensive Q&A sessions after each reading.

Our events are hosted in the intimate and characterful surroundings of Burdall’s Yard, with a fully-licensed bar separate from the performance space where you can relax and mingle with other poetry fans prior to and after the events.

On October 30th we welcome Michael Symmons Roberts to open our 2014-15 programme. His poetry has won the Forward Prize, the Costa Poetry Prize and the Whitbread Poetry Award, and been shortlisted for the Griffin International Poetry Prize and the T.S. Eliot Prize.

Michael has been prolific in musical collaborations – producing book and lyrics for choral commissions, song cycles, music theatre works and several operas. His work has been showcased extensively on radio, and he has also produced two novels.

30th October 2014, 7.45pm doors open for 8pm start. Event finishes 9.30pm – bar remains open after until 10.30pm.

£3 general admission, all welcome. *Events are free entry to Bath Spa University students and staff*
