Poetry Aloud has met in Bury St Edmunds since 2008. We currently meet in the Bay Tree Bistro Café on St Johns Street every last Tuesday of the month, except December, when there is no meeting. We begin at 19:30 and aim to finish at 21:30.

How we roll

Poetry Aloud Website mission statement

This website has the same philosophy as the poetry reading group with which it is associated — to provide local poets with a sympathetic platform from which to read (or in this case narrowcast) their work.

Poetry Aloud - Tuesday 25th October

Next Poetry Aloud will be on Tuesday 25th October, 7.30pm at The Bay Tree Cafe Bistro , 11 St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1SQ. Open Mic, as usual, and our featured poet this month will be Richard Whiting.

A new look!

Welcome to our updated website. The code we have been using since 2008 has long been falling into obsolescence, and is now finally obsolete. We have upgraded to the latest (having skipped a generation of code) and we hope you like the result.

This new version will work better on mobile devices of all sizes. It is also more secure for us all.

Most importantly, all of the poems are still here, accessed in the archive from the right-hand menu or the tabs on the top menu.
