In wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, and developing Government guidelines, we feel that regrettably it would be best to put Purely Poetry on hold for the moment, until this uncertain period of social distancing passes.
As much as we love poetry and bringing people together, we feel unfortunately it just would be unsafe and irresponsible for the open mic night to continue right now. Obviously, we take this decision with a heavy heart.
We fully support the Crescent Arts Centre and their own closure, and wish all staff there well. We will be back whenever it is safe to. In the meantime, stay safe and well, and thank you for your support.
