Our event on 28 January was another huge success … Luke Wright was at his inventive best, and he was well supported by Martin Newell who gave us a premier reading of his new poem The Green Children (of which more details very soon). There was a real buzz to the evening, and the Open Mic readers were as capable as ever.

MORE UPDATES TO COME …
