Come together. Write Now!

A brand new event, the POETRY PICNIC! A snack heavy celebration of music and poetry, with poet Simon Mole and musician Gecko. We’ll play fun (and quite silly) games to get to know each other and build your confidence and skill with words, then help you pen a poem with the power to send your picnic blanket skywards. And we’ll play some Beatles meets the Beastie Boys style bangers of our own.

Please note, this event is Bring Your Own Biscuits and will be in the Albany garden so please bring layers!
