Speakeasy Spoken Word Spectacular

Friday 4th May
Bladud’s Head
Doors 7:30pm

A regular on the spoken word circuit and organiser of Hammer and Tongue Bristol, Thommie Gillow showcases her new published collection of poetry ‘Milked’, following her journey to new motherhood. We will also be entertained and delighted by the voices of Bath Spa’s Callum Wensley and Sophie Dumont.

Bring along your offerings for the open mic – anecdotes, poems, tall tales, short stories, book excerpts, and we’ve even had a limerick or two!

Organiser Jo Butts is asking people to bring a poem (or multiples) on a postcard which she will collect on the Speakeasy night which she will then go and hide in random books in Beaufort Bookshop for customers to find from the Saturday of the festival and beyond. Customers can then go and either take them or re-hide. They don’t need to be original work but do need to be clean as it’s a family bookshop!

Come promptly to the Friday night event for open mic places.
