2nd Gig of the day and I wasn’t the only one – Gary Carr had also made it to both events today!
Liz Lefroy’s New Year Poetry Open Mic with Uncharacteristic Largesse – which is a title I didn’t fully understand until I got there – so many performers made it to the mic, I don’t think I have ever experienced anything like it before!
I had only ever once been to Shrewsbury (to take the train into Wales) and that was years ago, the bright weather didn’t last and the journey was a dark and rainy one so big thanks to Mike Alma who became my poetry chauffeur! I would still be on a Ring Road somewhere otherwise!
It was the first time at this event and if it was closer to home I might be able to regularly attend, I hope to make it back later in the year when the weather improves. It was a great mix of material and great to hear new poets (new to me that is!)
