AT: The Poetry Café, 22 Betterton Street, London WC2H 9BX

We are returning to the Poetry Café for the launch of SOUTH 61. The premises have been reconfigured and there's now a quieter space for readings. It is wheelchair accessible.

The venue is a short walk from Covent Garden underground station and is quite easy to get to from all London mainline stations. Those coming by car need to be aware of the Congestion Charge and that parking is likely to be expensive.

As usual, a selection of poets whose work appears in SOUTH 61 will have been chosen in advance, and each will read a short selection of their poems.

Please arrive at 7 pm for 7.30 start; there will be an interval about half way through and the evening will end shortly before 10 pm. Interval refreshments can be purchased in the cafe above the venue.

The Poetry Café itself is open from 11.00 am and serves drinks and meals. Further details are available from its pages on the Poetry Society webpage:

Previous readings by profiled poets can be found on the Links page.
