Boar’s Head

Really enjoyed reading at the Boar’s Head in Kidderminster, organised by Bobby Parker,  on Monday night. Excellent open mic and a great venue for poetry – up there with the Albert in Huddersfield.

Walking through the town afterwards was strange – Kidderminster now really is a ghost town – most of the shops closed, hardly anyone around, apart from huddles of people in the distance – a few kids on bikes  – and a handful of drinkers outside the Red Man on Blackwell Street.

But the event gave me hope – a cracking standard of poetry – one of the best open mics I’ve ever attended. The Boar’s Head is a brilliant venue. And Bobby on top form reading from his most recent book, Digging for Toys.

    I want to get to this one when I can get transport! Have heard good things about the evening from numerous sources. 🙂
