The Brokenborough Poets
An interesting evening at Writers in the Brewery in Cirencester yesterday - the Brokenborough Poets were this month's guests, reading from their anthology "Fieldwork". They're a long established group who meet monthly at the Horse Guards pub just outside Malmsbury; I had heard about them from my friend and Catchword colleague Liz Carew, who is one of their number, but this was my first experience of listening to their excellent work. I really enjoyed their variety of approaches and styles and, when I got home, read the anthology straight through, cover to cover. Some really good poetry there.
Another poetry event coming up on Friday (April 1st) - do join us if you're in the Cheltenham area. The New Bohemians evening coincides with a printmaking exhibition at deepspace artworks in Hamilton Street so is taking as its theme poetry inspired by the visual arts. Readings, a viewing of the exhibition, a classical music interlude, drinks and nibbles, to say nothing of the haiku competition, all for £6.50! 19.00 for 19.30 if you can make it - it's sure to be an enjoyable evening.
