UPCOMING SHOWS and EVENTS
11 Nov 2021, The Poetry Brothel Hastings: Un-Muted We are delighted to be launching an brand new Poetry Brothel in Hastings. It has been an age since our Poetry Brothel Family did a thing. We are celebrating with an event celebrating the Salons of rebels, bohemians and outsiders. We are a bit of a way from doing our signature 1-2-1 private readings, but we hope this tantalising offer of sensual poets and musicians will tempt you to our bigger events in the New Year.
The Edge of Uncertainty – Poems and music at the top of the tower – intimate performances with 6 audience members max. Performances will be 20mins long at start at 18:30, 19:15 and 20:00
June 15th – London Fetish Film Festival – 8pm. Poetry performance with Hen Ni Linnea on violin. Details to follow. You can purchase day or 3 day passes for the Festival at The Hen and Chickens Theatre, London.

June 22nd – Poetry Brothel London – Midsummer Ball at the Kings Head Private Members Club. This event focuses on Poetry as a decadent indulgence. We have ‘open readings’ where poets and musicians perform. I will be working with Hen Ni Linnea on the open performances. The gem of the night is purchasing private readings from the poets. (It’s not called a Poetry Brothel for nothing!). It’s a beautiful, sensual and multi-sensory experience in the lush surrounds of a private members club.
June 27th – Advantages of Age hosts 6 poets over 50 at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden. It’s a fabulous line-up of poets, curated by the marvellous Rose Rouse. The Poetry Cafe hosts wonderful events – in a lovely, cosy, Covent Garden room.
July 6th – The Crimson Word will be performing 1-2-1 intimate readings at a special Mansion Party in Brighton. Details to follow. Follow our page for updates.
July 7th – The Bloody Poets: From Darkness with Hen Ni Linnea. This is a great night of more experimental ways of presenting poetry and music, curated by the great Mad Pirvan. At SET in Dalston. It’s a great line up.
