Spring is in the air: a time of growth, beginning and purpose.

The mythical Cosmic Pumpkin is re-entering our atmospheres. Bringing forth an embracing night of Poetry & music.

We're calling on all the secret writers, hidden wordsmiths and elusive lyricists! This is the place to celebrate the beauty of Spoken Word. 

Join us on Wednesday March 20th at RSA House. Doors open at 7.30pm, please arrive early to sign up for the Open-Mic. The Pumpkin will be in our presence from 8-10pm. Let's spring forward and rewrite a new beginning.
