Theme for Poetry Cafe reading at Festival of Suffolk Poetry in May

For those of you not at the January meeting, after much discussion we decided that the theme for our reading at this year's Festival of Suffolk Poetry would be the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

PA Meeting January 2016

We began the year without a poet of the month as we used the time after the interval to explore ideas for our performance at the 3rd Annual Suffolk Poetry Festival on the 28th of May.  After quite some debate an interesting theme was settled on for people to write to.  Nineteen were present including three people who hadn’t been before all of whom read.  We also had a surprise visit from Anthony-Noel Kelly, artist.  He is looking for a poet to help with his latest project.

Poetry Aloud, Tuesday 26th January

Happy New Year to everyone and welcome back Poetry Aloud, I hope you all had a good Christmas, Hanukah, Saturnalia or Dr Who Christmas special (delete inapplicable).

Well the first meeting of the year is upon us and I’m looking forward to hearing some great poetry from you all. We are at our usual venue, the Bay Tree with our usual start time of 7.30.

PA Meeting November 2015

The November meeting, the last of the year, kicked off early downstairs at the Bay Tree with a celebration buffet given by Chris Bowden for his birthday.   Nineteen of us reconvened upstairs to read our poetry.  Our poet of the month was Jane Henderson who read a fascinating set of poems.  It was a fitting end to a great year.
