After Hours Live kicked off the New Year with a fantastic open-mic poetry evening. Poets from around Wisbech and the Fenland area came along and read poems by prominent published poets as well as poems they had written themselves. The forty-strong audience thoroughly enjoyed the literary entertainment as well as the superb ambiance of Octavia's Cafe. As always, the coffee was brewed to perfection and the cakes were sublime.
Matt McChlery, After Hours Live's organiser and promoter, used the oportunity to suggest the possibility of publishing an anthology of original poetry written by those who have attended After Hours Live poetry evenings as well as those from around the fenland area. All application forms that were available on the night were taken away - however you can download a copy from www.afterhourslive.org.uk if you are interested in also taking part. Deadline for poem submissions is 1st April 2013.
Our next After Hours Live event is going to be held at Octavia's Cafe on Friday 1st February 2013 with our special guest Alan Vibes. Alan is a natural entertainer and does a great Tom Jones impression. He also sings Elvis, The Blues Brothers and other rock-and-roll classics. Do come along for a night of great entertainment with a twist of faith!
