October brings us a new chance to beat the Autumn chill with a scintillating showcase of spontaneity brought to us by bostin’ wordsmiths of local repute. This includes the superabundance of mirth from our feature artiste, Willis the Poet.
Come one, come all and enjoy the evening either as an audience member or as one of the performers in the Lamp theatre space at Brownhills Community Centre. Should you have an inclination to perform your own works, let us know via Facebook or email - firstname.lastname@example.org
7:30 to 10:00 pm - please do book in advance for a performance slot and/or a seat at a table, cabaret style, to view and listen.
HEADLINER: Willis the Poet
Rick Sanders, aka Willis the Poet, is an established comedy stand-up poet. As well as being a regular on the Birmingham poetry circuit. He actively supports the flourishing spoken word event scene in the region.
Runner-up in the Wolverhampton Literary Festival Slam in 2017 & 2018 , he has performed at the Cheltenham Poetry Festival, in the poetry tent Lakefest, and as the emerging talent at Apples & Snake’s Bright Smoke event with the RSC in Stratford, wowing the organisers with his comic verse.
Willis runs a monthly poetry slam event in Dudley, presents Brum Radio Poets, and also hosts Whisky & Words at the Birmingham Whisky Club - two of his favourite things.

Other drinks available at the bar. (Hoping the bar is reinstated!)
Raffle with great prizes to be won for lucky 50p tickets.
