Our readers on the night were:
David Braziel, Tom French, Katy Waller, Ev Mcl, Anthony Ferguson, Norman Patterson, MK Maguire, Ross Thompson, Joel Auterson, Lesley Martin, 'Forty Two', Peter Francis Fahy, Ray Givans, Geraldine O'Kane, David Davies, Jenny Cleland, David Smylie, Tory Campbell, Lesley Johnston, Andy Ward, Patricia Devlin Hill and Mark Cooper.
Particular praise goes to our first timers, who read with aplomb and grace, and were all well received. A few of them were saying to us that they were surprised at how friendly and welcoming it was. That's exactly the mood we aim for!
We are back on Friday 2nd May for another open mic, we hope to see you all there.
