Many thanks to everyone who came out to support our first open mic poetry night at The Alley Theatre last night in Strabane. We're thrilled with the turnout, and it was great to hear so many local voices contributing.
Extended thanks and praise to the host, Chris McLaughlin, who did a great job connecting and interacting with everyone, making sure that everything flowed successfully on the night.
Our open mics readers on the night were:
Marie Costello, Lynne Mary-Lou, Gertrude Flynn, Niall McGrath, David Braziel, Florence Forbes, Margaret Giblen, Caroline Hoey, Gemma Hill, Tommy Canning, Sheila Hill, Katie McLaughlin and Paul Butterfield Jnr. Well done everyone!
We're also delighted to confirm that Chris has arranged a series of further poetry night with the Alley, which he will be running over the next six months. more details on these events soon.
