Bright Smoke

A new poetry night with a difference at The Other Place.

Bright Smoke 1824x1400

Third Friday of the month
Susie's Cafe Bar, The Other Place
Free, no booking required.

Performances will take place at 7.30pm in Susie’s Cafe Bar, located on the ground floor foyer of The Other Place (please note the start time will be 9.45pm during our festival seasons as listed below). Food is served until 9pm.

Bright Smoke is a poetry night with a difference, an irreverent look at what matters the most; a happy paradox. This live and unpredictable event brings together writing and performance, the topical and the transcendent, the entertaining and the cathartic.

Join some of the country’s top poets and performers as they explore a different theme each month, inspired by our productions, and share your own work on the open mic alongside them. 

  • Friday 15 September 2017, 9.45pm (the theme is 'Ranting')
  • Friday 20 October 2017, 7.30pm

Bright Smoke is brought to you in collaboration with Apples & Snakes.

Open mic slots will be allocated on the night, and can be signed up for on the door. The work you share doesn't have to be related to the theme of the evening.
