Things need to change Complain complain complain Lets do something about it Somebody already is Well lets do it as well It’s not going to change anything, nothing ever does Lets do more Nobody will come Lets do it differently They’re busy doing their own thing Lets do it in the dark Nobody will care Lets do it with people we don’t know There’s already too much of it out there Lets do it in Beckenham
With a microphone
In a bookshop.
Having spent much time reading many of your words on screen, I recently got a hankering for some real, in-the-flesh poetry. A few events in London and some irregular You-Tubing later and my appetites whetted… Thankfully, the thoughtful wordsmyths at The Beckenham Bookshop agreed to support my urge to witness more of this on my own doorstep. Ergo…
Here’s your invitation to a free, Open Mic, Poetry event in Beckenham, London.
Tuesday 1 March, 6.30PM-8PM.
Sign up on the door for a 7 O’Clock start, with each artist given up to 5 minutes airtime (depending on numbers), you will enjoy a poetic reception at The Beckenham Bookshop and see the start of a regular, ‘local’, poetry event.
