About this event

Five Leaves is very pleased to present their first open mic evening at the shop (except there is no mic…). 

After playing host to some fantastic poets over the last 4(ish) years, they thought that it was high time that they had an evening for some local talent. 

So if you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere to perform your poems (maybe even for the first time) they would love to hear you read.

Book your place

Because it’s their first time and they’re not sure how many people would like to perform/attend, if you would like to read, please email the shop at and perhaps email them a poem too so they can come up with a running order.

Entry is free, refreshments available for a small donation.
