Postponed: Poetry slam

Late night love stories

Friday 26 March 2021

We’re sorry to breaks hearts, but forces outside of our control mean we’ve had to postpone the Poetry slam: all the languages of love event.

Instead of it being on this Friday evening, we promise to make it up to you with a FREE weekend event another time. We still need to work out the finer details, but we’ll let you know when it’s on.

Of course, we’ll be automatically refunding your tickets in full, so keep an eye on your account over the next week.
