Bright Smoke
In collaboration with the RSC

Bright Smoke is a poetry night with a difference, an irreverent look at what matters the most; a happy paradox. This live and unpredictable event brings together writing and performance, the topical and the transcendent, the entertaining and the cathartic.

Join some of the country’s top poets and performers as they explore a different theme each month, inspired by our productions, and share your own work on the open mic alongside them.

Open mic slots will be allocated on the night, and can be signed up for on the door. The work you share doesn’t have to be related to the theme of the evening.


Free, no booking required

When:  Thursday 12 April | Thursday 10 May | Thursday 14 June (6.45pm start) | Thursday 12 July | Thursday 13 September | Thursday 8 November
Performances will take place at 7.30pm (please note the start time will be 6.45pm during our festival season). Food is served until 9pm.
