Sundays; 7.30pm; £5/4 according to pocket
There have been poetry readings on Sunday nights at Torriano Meeting House
since 1982. As well as the evening’s main readers invited from a broad range of literary practice, there are usually a number of ‘poets from the floor’, who may include full-time poets and also beginners presenting a piece in public for the first time. The range has spanned Stephen Spender and John Heath-Stubbs to Labi Siffre and John Hegley.
The publishers Hearing Eye was born from the Sunday readings and has its base at Torriano.
Sundays at 7.30pm.
Poets from the floor welcome. Admission £5/£4 (according to pocket)
