It is my turn once more to be the MC at the event, and I extend this invitation:

Join us as RARA launches the second collection of pieces from contributors to the Rhyme and Real Ale open mic nights, Voices From The Present. The warmly received and still selling first collection, Voices From The Past Year will also be available. Come one, come all. Join us and join in.

Will be joining in with the open mic section myself.

A NIGHT OF SPOKEN INDULGENCE returns to the Hydra Bookshop in Bristol, click here for details. Matt Duggan is the organiser and host, as ever, and several of the Rhyme and Real Ale regulars will be taking part. Why not come along? Could be verse!

Rowan Talbot’s regular showcase for new performance art/theatre/spoken word etc will return to Four Bars at Dempseys, Cardiff, March 29th. CLICK HERE for details of SCRATCH PLATFORM 4. I have bagged one of the sought after slots and am looking forward to delivering comic verse, at various speeds

Free entry, and unlike other performance nights, this one definitely starts at the stated start time, so be early to get a seat!

And…nah, I think that is enough for now. Keep it warm out there, folks 🙂
