Event description

Description

An amazing night out with performances by six of the very best poets from in and around Southampton.

Although called ‘New Southampton Poets’, all these poets already have won Regional and National Awards for their work, or have books out, and perform in London and at Festivals across the South.

The programme includes live performances by Damian O'Vitch, Stewart Taylor, Kayleigh O'Reilly, Andrew Buchanan, and Dave Hubble, and also work by Angelia Saplan. They are excellent performers who perform a very wide range of work.

There's the hilarious UK Anti Slam Award Winner (2017) Stewart Taylor. There are very clever and highly engaging works of Damian O'Vitch who was Finalist in the UK National Poetry Slam (2016 & 2018) and of Dave Hubble who is one of the Winners of the Bread & Roses Poetry Award (2019).

There is the very powerful, personal and passionate work of Angelia Saplan, who has been published in the US. And the elegant, considered and quietly moving work of Kayleigh O'Reilly and of Andy Buchanan who have both been published in the UK, and Andy Buchanan's work has been published and translated in English, Mandarin Chinese and Korean. So no matter what poetry you like there is something for all tastes.

The new book will be launched at this event. So do book now for what promises to be the Southampton poetry event of the season. Supported by Arts Council England.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The Art House is in a perfect central location. It is diagonally opposite the Civic Centre Library entrance, next door to Mango Above Bar and what was Goblets Wine Bar, and is directly opposite the Southampton Solent University building. It's about 10 minutes walk from Southampton City Centre train station (head up the hill toward the Guildhall clock tower) and on the route for most city centre buses. There are a number of car parks withing about 5 minutes walk.


Accessibility info
The events are held on the first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. The Art House regrets that, due to space and other constraints, they are unable to relocate their events to the ground floor for those who require ground-level access - so sorry.

What can/can't I bring to the event?
The Art House has a great vegetarian cafe and bar, so please don't bring your own food or drink.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
