4 Poetry Shows In London For Your Consideration

This Friday at Cottons (Jan 25th)
Thanks to Come Rhyme With Me your socialising calendar can be filled with an evening of poetry and spoken word.  The night takes place the last Friday of the month at Cotton’s restaurant, Islington and thanks to the imaginative minds of its founders, Dean and Deanna, the show takes inspiration from a meal and is served in ‘3 courses’. The starter consists of an up-and coming poet, followed by a meaty main of an experienced professional. Finally, dessert bears witness to something more light-hearted perhaps some cabaret, comedy or music.
The show starts at 7:00pm and finishes at 10pm with tickets at £7.50 for the show or £12.50 to include a plate of traditional Caribbean food. TSL suggest getting here early to get a comfortable seat at a table as well as staying after the show for some socialising!
February 8th at The Poetry Cafe'  
To celebrate his recently published book, "Life In Transit", Sam Berkson invites you to a unique evening of interactive performance poetry, with support from the equally brilliant RAYMOND ANTROBUS and MICHELLE MADSEN, 

His aim is to make public transport public again, one poem at a time. Taking you on a poetic journey, galloping over social etiquette, cruising through bizarre encounters and hurtling us towards new ways of relating to public spaces, with poems such as "Lust (on a bendy bus)" and "Hitchhiking characters", Berkson promises to transform your attitude towards public transport.

An experienced performer and poet, Berkson is a trusty guide for all those hungry for performance poetry and adventure, so pack your imagination and clean out your ears for a fun filled journey into the unknown.

Copies of 'Life In Transit' and 'Shapes & Disfigurements' by Raymond Antrobus, will be on sale as will delicious drinks and refreshments at the bar.

February 13th Chill Pill Connects at Roundhouse

Chill Pill is BACK with a brand new show for 2013: Chill Pill Connect. 

We're hooking up with The Roundhouse team to create a live, interactive radio show, and we need YOU to get involved. 

Chill Pill Connect brings you all the goodness you've come to expect from the Chill Pill Team, the tunes, the banter, and of course, the poetry, but this time there's a twist.

Connect is being recorded and then moulded by the magic of Roundhouse technology, into a full blown spoken word audio feast. And two open mic-ers will have their poems broadcast as a part of the upcoming show.

This is a brand new concept for Chill Pill and we're very excited to offer up and coming artists the opportunity to be involved.

We'll have eight open mic slots but it's guaranteed to fill up so arrive early to secure a place.

See you there!
