An evening of exclamations, exultations, inspirations, joyful adherence to punctuation and some nice poems. Halifax's most enthusiastic poetry lovers perform their favourite pieces of poetry.

Join us for the reception after the reading where you may purchase our prescription poetry to cure all your ailments: lovesickness, heartsickness, having seen a caterpillar, loving rocks and feeling lonely, loving rocks and feeling lonely, being frightened of ghosts, being frightened of toast, and a tendency to look forlornly at the water.
