WORD! is one of the longest running poetry nights in the UK - and has become an established favourite at Beeston Library, featuring a huge range of poetic voices in a friendly, celebratory atmosphere. Expect all sorts of spoken word styles, from familiar and new poets, and even the odd ukelele interlude. There is a pre-show and interval bar.
