Join some of the country’s top poets and performers for our free monthly poetry event. Bright Smoke is a poetry night with a difference. Live and entertaining, creative and raw with an opportunity to take to the stage and share your own work.

Performances will take place from 7.30pm in Susie’s Cafe Bar, located on the ground floor foyer of The Other Place (please note the start time will be earlier during our Festival Season).

Performers’ work is unedited, and may contain strong language and adult themes. Open mic slots will be allocated on the night and you can sign up on the door.

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