What else do we do apart from read and write poetry?


Performance opportunities!

Opportunities for readings/performances arise throughout the year, including festivals.  A reading from
the Cheltenham 300 anthology is scheduled for Saturday 6 May during Cheltenham Poetry Festival , 4 – 14 May, which will also offer open mic opportunities at other events.

Separately from the Society’s programme, regular opportunities for performance exist at Poetry Café - Refreshed, at Smokey Joe’s, 15 Bennington St commencing at 7pm usually on the third Wednesday of the month - except in March (when it will be on 22nd) and December (when it will be on 13th).  A guest poet is invited to Poetry Café - Refreshed, and there are Open mic slots for anyone wishing to read/perform. 

Other Events!

The Annual Lecture will be given by David Clarke on Wednesday 29 March in the Pittville Room at Cheltenham Municipal Offices, Promenade, on the subject The Landscapes of Post-War German Poetry.

The Society’s annual writing retreat Awayday is on Wednesday 24 May where we troop off to a lovely countryside location for the day, to write, eat, drink ... and wander the grounds of the venue!      

A social evening for members/friends/family of the Society will be held on possibly 21 July (date/venue to be confirmed).

The Annual General Meeting, which all subscribing members of the Society are welcome to attend, will be on 28 November, followed by a shortened Writing Group meeting.

More events are likely to be added as the opportunities arise!
