10.3.2014 - Evidently poetry night, Salford

Punk poetry bites back in Salford
Eagle Inn,
18 Collier Street,
City of Salford
M3 7DW

7.30pm

£3 on the door

Join us for another night of "clever, witty and thought-provoking entertainment" at Evidently!

Boasting the fabulous talents of Rosie Garland and hosted by Salford's own Kieren King.

Not to be missed!

Also eight open mic spots are available (one poem - two minutes per poet) on a first come first served basis so if you would like a slot please arrive early to avoid disappointment. We are filming each night so everyone who performs will get a shiny new Youtube video if they want one.

Host, multiple slam winner Kieren King says "If you walk down a street and see three signs, one advertising live music, one advertising live comedy and the third advertising live poetry chances are people would go to either of the first two. We are looking to change that and give people a fun and entertaining night out".

Forget what you learned in school. This is poetry at its best.

The Manchester Museum
The University of Manchester
Oxford Road
Manchester
M13 9PL

Tickets £6/£4 concessions

Book on: 0843 208 0500

Join author Rosie Garland and Victorian sideshow performers for an evening of mystery and excitement in the atmospheric Living World gallery at Manchester Museum. Rosie will read from her startling debut novel which follows the fortunes of Eve and Abel – cast out by Victorian society, they become The Lion-Faced Girl and The Flayed Man, star performers in The Palace of Curiosities. Rosie has performed in previous incarnations as the singer in cult goth band The March Violets and as twisted alter-ego Rosie Lugosi the Vampire Queen. She has published five collections of poetry and last year won the Mslexia Novel Competition which landed her a publishing deal with HarperCollins. A circus troupe, also called The Palace of Curiosities, will provide further entertainment with the aid of fabulously inventive props and razor sharp wit. Prepare to be amazed!
