The Sampler Goes South (Poetry Event with open mic)

Simon Barraclough at Museum of London Docklands, 2nd May, 2009
Loads happening right now. The second event as part of The Sampler series is taking place on 28th May at The Admiral Hardy, 7 College Approach, starting at 7pm with yours truly hosting.

The line up includes the linguistically versatile Joe Duggan; the devastatingly fashionable and erudite Jack Underwood; the highly talented and eclectic Heather Phillipson; the electrifying Helen Mort and the smooth talking Tamsin Kendrick.

See more details at:

There will be a brief open mic but please turn up early if you want to read.

The last Sampler at the Museum of London Docklands event went really well with a more than decent crowd for a hot Saturday afternoon. Many thanks to Roddy Lumsden, Isobel Dixon and Simon Barraclough.
