Poetry Aloud poets and the Festival of Suffolk Poetry

At our next meeting on the 30th of April, during the second half, we'd like to have a read through of the the poems to be read at the 6th Festival of Suffolk Poetry on Saturday 11th May .

Would any poets intending to read at our poetry cafe slot of the festival,  please email up to two poems on our theme 'Beginning with a line from....' to Jen Overett : by the 6th of April so she can put them in a running order that shows them off to their best advantage when we read at the festival.

Our meetings from 30th October 2018 will be at a new venue, Risbygate Sports Club, Westley Road, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 3RR
There is very good parking close to the main entrance*. The bar is close by without being intrusively so and there are close and ample toilet facilities. The acoustic qualities of the room appear excellent too.
