Poetry Breakfast at Aardvark

Poetry Breakfast at Aardvark Books: come and consider poems on the theme of Love! Bring published poems to read, or just listen, and enjoy a French breakfast too. All are welcome, If you love poetry, come and share your passion with others. The cost is £8.00 to include coffee and croissants. Queries and bookings: Anna Dreda, 07772 288077, or email: info@wenlockbooks.co.uk

Poetry Breakfast is an informal and relaxed way to experience your poetry, whether you are a confirmed poetry lover already, or were put off at school by having to study it for exams. Whatever your reason for coming, enjoyment is guaranteed as we bring the very best of poetry and share it by simply reading aloud to each other. There are always plenty who like to read so there is no pressure to perform and listeners are very much wanted too, so don’t be shy about joining us.

The cost is £8 per person, to include your breakfast and a free coffee refill, and the session lasts about an hour. If you can let us know by the day before if you are coming, that does help enormously with planning, but if you’re last minute, just turn up. We will be delighted to see you.

Poetry Breakfast was created by Anna Dreda, of Wenlock Books and Wenlock Poetry Festival, and is now also held in other venues in Shropshire, including the Poetry Pharmacy in Bishops Castle. The Aardvark Poetry Breakfasts are convivial events held by the wood burner (in winter), among the bookshelves. Partners and family are welcome to come and browse too!

Event starts at 9:30am.
