A Lovely Word: Featuring Miss Yankey
April Fools. It’s the silliest day of the year! Why not kick back for a night on zoom this April, and join Alex, Lyndsay and the regulars at A Lovely Word for some poetry and fun.
A Lovely Word is Liverpool’s premiere spoken word night, usually taking place in the Everyman Bistro.
The evening will start with a 20 minute headline slot, then headliner Q&A, then open mic poets.
This event is broadcast over zoom and Facebook live (zoom link available the day before the performance, on the 31st March). Facebook will be here.
If you want to sign up for the open mic, a four minute slot via zoom, email [email protected] before the 30th March midday, with your name and email. You will receive a confirmation the evening before the Open Mic
We would LOVE to hear jokey fun poems this month in line with it being April Fools!
