As summer slipped away, we decided we needed something new and wonderful to celebrate what we do, and got some T shirts printed. Our ‘poet’ design attracted a lot of interest, so we thought we’d make them available. If you want one (or more) in a size or colour of your choice, email us to let us know. They’re just £10 a pop (+ p&p if you can’t pick one up from us directly). A lovely bit of merch, if we say so ourselves!
Well here it is, the Poets, Prattlers, and Pandemonialists website. It’s complete. Look at this home we’ve created. It is filled with great content, stylish, and a bit silly (A bit like us). We feel it was worth all the blazing rows we had about Oxford commas.
So this website is complete. Please run around and click things. Obviously we’ll be adding new content regularly so don’t think you can show up here once and that’s the end of it. Keep popping back, subscribe to our newsletter, and follow us on Twitter.
For now all the Pandemonialists will sit back with a look on our face a bit like this:
No, we’re not sure what that brown thing in the background is either.
We are proud to announce our very own Emma Purshouse won the Poetry Slam at the Shambala Festival over the weekend.
Her prize is two tickets to next year’s festival as well as a gig there. It is also possible she will never talk to Dave and Steve again, although she is letting them share this video of the poem she read in the final of the slam. We hope you enjoy it as much as the audience did at Shambala.
Did you all have a nice Summer? Are you tanned and relaxed and ready for what the autumn will throw in your face? At PPP, we’re ready for anything Autumn launches in our direction thanks to Yes, We Cant. Yes, after our Summer hiatus we bring you the excellent Rob Barratt headlining. Rob will be bringing his unique word-play and satire for the bronzed and serene Walsall audience.
To top that, in our ‘alf ender slot we have superb poet and all round good egg Nina Lewis. She’s also been Worcestershire Poet Laureate so wear a nice hat or something.
And as usual four open mic slots will be up for grabs on the night, we’ll have our eight-line poetry competition and the bar will serve outrageously good beer and ridiculously cheap cobs.
How much will all this cost? It’s free. Although, we do have a donation bucket (a Communist Hat of Wealth Re-distribution).
It all kicks off on 2nd September 2018 at The Pretty Bricks, John Street, Walsall. WS2 8AF. Doors are at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm. Even better we’re usually done for half nine so you can go home and wash the autumnal breeze out of your hair.
Our new website is being built. Therefore expect broken links, typos, radical changes in design, bugs and falling masonry. Hard hats and safety shoes must be worn.
