A new poetry night is coming to RSA House, this one is Halloween themed.
"The Cosmic Pumpkin"
Have you ever had a seed of an idea, a poetical thought or artistic musing that you wanted to explore and share with the world? All over the universe, there are new beginnings, new creations, new adventures but where can the spark of inspiration reside?
Welcome to the "Cosmic Pumpkin": a brand new Open Mic Night which seeks to cultivate the growth of possibility that exits within us all. We launch on 31 October Halloween from 8-10pm. We call on poets, storytellers and musicians to come and join us at RSA House and conjure up the magic of their imagination.
