Sundays; 7.30pm; £6/5 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.
