Buzzwords at the Cheltenham Festival

"Next Sunday, 7th October, Buzzwords will be at The Cheltenham Festival of Literature. (event 61 in the festival programme).

8pm onwards in the ‘CafĂ© Theatre’ (behind the Town Hall)

Two fabulous guest poets: Kei Miller and Clare Shaw

There will be a limited open mic – first come, first served.
Please note that we have to keep the open mic spots strictly to 3 minutes: if you intend to read a long poem then please rehearse (including any preamble) and time yourself.

There will be a raffle – proceeds to support ‘Buzzwords’
Tickets £5
Please note that if you want to get a ticket on the night, you will need to go to the box office (at the front of the Town Hall)

Gloucestershire Writers

In other festival news – please support, if you can, the Gloucestershire Writers’ Network event (event 81) on Monday 8th October at 9pm at the Town Hall. This event is the only opportunity that the main festival provides for local writers so please support it if you are able. Tickets £4

New Venue!

We have found a new venue: from November, Buzzwords will be upstairs at The Exmouth, Bath Road (opposite the co-op). The pub has been refurbished and now has a pretty function room that is ideal for us. This means that we will be able to return to the earlier start time of 7pm, which I know is easier for many people. There is a car park and if the pub car park is full, the ‘shoppers’ car park is just around the corner.

The new management at The Exmouth are being very helpful so do come and support us to show them how we can benefit the venue."
