Highgate Poets to Perform Saturday 2nd March

The Enfield Poets exist to give a platform to local poets with a chance to try out their work in front of a friendly and sympathetic audience, and to enjoy listening to and learning from guest poets.

If you would like to hear work from Anna Meryt, Milverton Wallace, Jack Cooper, Sal Consoli, and Michael Pierce, head to Thomas Hardy House, 39 London Road, Enfield. Performances start at 7:30pm. Admission is £3.50, or £2.50 for Concessions.

We hope to see you there!
