Come one come all! Head along to the brilliance that is Poetry Live on the 4th of August for a truly wonderful night!
First up at 8:00pm the night will be started off with Lane and Liz!
Lane and Liz have been playing together for the better part of four years. They are the core song writing team of indie-folk outfit ‘Those Lethals’, but have recently been working at moving in a new electronic groove-pop direction. This Tuesday they will be previewing a stripped back assortment of this new material for your listening pleasure.
The first half of open mic where you are welcome to take the stage to share your latest poetic offers!
At about 9:30pm, we’ll have our guest poet, Anne Kennedy
Anne Kennedy is a poet, fiction writer, screenplay editor and teacher. Her latest books are Moth Hour (AUP) and The Ice Shelf (VUP).

Then open mic until finish!
