Sunday, April 25th, 2010, 7.30pm, £3/£2
The Fox,
Leamington Spa
CV32 4RZ

Each month we also invite a fabulous guest performance poet and this month we have the very talented and funny Simon Lee. According to Google, he owns an international art gallery, produces a range of guitars, is a professor of economics, features in a poem by William Wordsworth, and was recently sent to prison for an offence involving 'flames of passion' (that is, arson). Unfortunately, none of those Simons are performing at PGR this month so you'll just have to make do with the Birmingham-based version.

Solicitor-by-day and poet-by-night, Simon's poems tackle the pressing issues of today, including why we should love lawyers, why tax is sexy, and why we need more modern-day superheroes.
Simon has performed at a variety of venues including a shopping centre in Cheltenham as part of last year's Literature Festival Voices Off programme, a number of libraries, and several living rooms. He has also won a few poetry slams including Slam The Atom at the Cheltenham Science Festival

With open mic support from…….yes……YOU!
Come and share your poems - seasoned poets & first time performers most welcome! As we aim for a 7.30pm start please arrive a bit earlier to book a slot!!!

If you're planning to come along, or would like to know more about the night, please email pgrpoetryandpints@talktalk.net
