Mouths Wide Shut

A monthly space to explore, experience & experiment, with prattling prose & poetry. We're a small, intimate, inclusive and fully accessible space open to every poet from all walks of life. Expect riffing by candlelight in a thirty-seat, centuries-old Chapel. There is also a table that all and sundry on the poetry scene can drop their leaflets or business cards on - please feel free to sell your anthologies too. We believe in pushing each others work forward in the world.

Doors at 6.30, kick off at 7pm sharp with open poem to get you vibing from our feature act. Then open mic, then break, then Feature, then open mic. Then, a local pub.

“Insane word play, enrapturing flows and enough syllables to fill a room full of hungry hearts. We love this boy. We love him like we would our own child. Come see our child!” Matt and Rikki (the F.W.Y.H team)
