Night Blue Fruit open mic: important changes

NIGHT BLUE FRUIT moves from Tin Angel venue

Jon Morley of the Heaventree Press in Coventry makes this announcement:

"There's been a CHANGE to the arrangements for our regular poetry open mic nights in Coventry. We're moving to LIQUID CAFE-WINE BAR in the City Arcade, and it will be the first THURSDAY of each month, not Tuesdays as previously.

Liquid has full disabled access, and there's parking round the back (off Greyfriars road). The nearest bus stops are the 12 by the Litten Tree or the 10, 33, etc over the road from Ikea. And, in case you needed any other incentive to the joys of the spoken word to entice you down on Thursday, the management have agreed to reduce the price of beer by 50p for all poetry night attendees! Liquid indeed.

This year's dates are:

Feb 7th
March 6th
April 3rd
May 1st
June 5th
July 3rd
Aug 7th
Sept 4th
Oct 2nd
Nov 6th
Dec 4th
