Fire River Poets – Poetry Reading Nights with Guest Poet Stephen Boyce – Thurs 7th Nov 2019

After the fun and mystery of October’s guest, Fire River Poets are delighted to welcome as our ninth guest for the year, Stephen Boyce, who will read for us on Thursday 7 November 2019. ‘Stephen is an old friend of Fire River Poets and it’s good to welcome him back,’ says Chairman of Fire River Poets, John Stuart, ‘He’s a master of the telling phrase and quiet understatement.’


Members of Fire River Poets will also be reading during the evening and, as John is always at pains to point out “We always provide a platform for poets of all ages and levels of experience, so there will as usual be an open mic session during the evening for any poet who would like to come along and read. Poets who would like to take advantage of this opportunity should apply through the Contact Us page on the Fire River Poets website www.fireriverpoets.org.uk.”


Doors open at 7.30 pm. The reading begins at 8.00 pm and costs £6.00. Entry should be paid for at the door. Venue enquiries to 01823 337477.

Normally on the first Thursday of the month. Check the Fire River poets web page below for details.
