Poets, Prattlers, and Pandemonialists present the Birmingham Gig

Date: June 5, 2019

Time: 7.30pm - 10.30pm

Location: The Gunmakers Arms, 93 Bath Street, Birmingham B4 6HG

The first half will be fairly normal!  There will be sets from Dave Pitt, Steve Pottinger, and Emma Purshouse.  There will be 3 open mic slots available in advance (strict 5 minutes each).  If you would like one then please email poetsprattlerspandemonialists@gmail.com

But, the second half of the night will run like this… One of us (Steve, Emma, or Dave) starts off with a poem. Then we take it in turns to link subsequent poems to the one which has just been performed. This means we have NO IDEA WHERE THINGS WILL END UP. It’s seat-of-your-pants poetry. It keeps us on our toes.

Just to add to the excitement, we’ll have three ‘wild cards’ where audience members who think they’ve got a poem which will link in can shout ‘joker’. They step up and read their poem, and we try and link to that. Will it work? We’ve no idea. Come along and find out!

And don’t forget to bring your poems.
