An Obscurity of Poets

Thursday 25th July 2019 – 7pm – 11pm

Poets are the “unacknowledged legislators of the world” according to Percy Byshee Shelley. But it’s not just as legislators, so much as in general that they’re unacknowledged.

Come along to the fantastic Mascara Bar to help redress that at An Obscurity of Poets, the night that puts poetry and poetics first. Hosted by poet, storyteller and self-proclaimed public intellectual, Andrew James Brown.

Come along and enjoy the wit and wisdom of our fabulous feature acts, or share some words of your own on the open mic, with sign up from 19:00.
